The synergy from the amalgamation will create a globally competitive, next generation bank, PNB 2.0, the bank said in a release and added that all customers, including depositors, will be treated as PNB customers.

PNB 2.0 will be offering specified inter-operable services through all branches and all platforms including Mobile and Internet Banking, it added.

"The bigger geographical footprint will help us serve our customers more effectively and efficiently," said S S Mallikarjuna Rao, MD & CEO of Punjab National Bank.

The lender said it has appointed 'Bank Sathi' at all branches/zones/head office (of all three banks) that will address customer concerns and assist them in choosing the right products and services. It will also smoothen the customer transition, it added.

A robust risk governance mechanism has been set up to mitigate risks and make the banking experience secure and safe, PNB noted.

Meanwhile, PNB has unveiled a new logo following the merger of United Bank of India and Oriental Bank of Commerce with it. The new logo will bear distinct signages of all the three public sector lenders.
