Thiruvananthapuram | Banking operations were affected today in Kerala following a one-day strike call given by the All India Bank Officers Confederation (AIBOC) in the state.
The call for strike was given to protest against removal of the Dhanalakshmi Bank Officers Organisation general secretary P V Mohan.
All bank branches remained shut in the state today, AIBOC said in a press release, although SBI and some new-generation bank were open.
Mohan, who is also the AIBOC state president, was removed from service by the bank recently.
Meanwhile, the Dhanalakshmi bank officers also decided to go on an indefinite strike nation wide from tomorrow.
Earlier in the day, the State Bank of Travancore had said that its business might get affected due to the strike. All India Bank Officers’ Confederation (AIBOC) is an apex trade union of supervisory cadre employees.
