Commemorating the recently held Deepavali festival, 32 People’s Bank branches and service centres remained open for transactions in areas such as North, East, Vanni, Kandy, Badulla, Nuwara Eliya, Puttalam and Colombo, where most Hindu devotees live.

Furthermore, most of the branches held special Deepavali celebrations.  The main celebration was held at the Wellawatta Branch under the patronage of the Chairman of People’s Bank W. Karunajeewa. A special Hindu ‘pooja’ was conducted to invoke the blessings for the nation, customers, as well as the staff of People’s Bank. Various Hindu cultural items added colour to the ceremony. The gathering included the corporate and executive management of the bank, customers, and residents around the area. Here, Chairman of People’s Bank, W. Karunajeewa, Chief Executive Officer/General Manager of People’s Bank N. Vasantha Kumar and the corporate and the executive management of People’s Bank attend the special Hindu ‘Pooja’.
