The bank’s Chairman & CEO Mushtaq Ahmad handed over the keys of the vehicles to the respective representatives in presence of Executive President Abdul Rauf and Vice President & Private Secretary to Chairman Syed Shujaat Hussain here at the bank’s Corporate Headquarters, a company statement said this evening.
Speaking on the occasion, Chairman Mushtaq Ahmad said, “Our CSR Programme remains alive to the diverse yet comprehensive needs of our society and we shall continue to be holistic in approaching the issues that we are beset with.”
“In line with the approach, today the bank has provided a Tata Winger to Chhotay Taray with a view to make journey of differently abled kids to and from their homes comfortable.
