In its continuous endeavour to support the nation’s efforts and the COVID warriors from the strains of the pandemic, the State Bank of India (SBI) has donated Rs. 1 crore to the Mumbai Police Foundation. The funds will be utilized for the welfare of deceased police personnel’s families of Mumbai Police.
The occasion was marked by Dinesh Khara, Chairman, SBI who handed over the cheque to Param Bir Singh, Commissioner, Mumbai Police at the Corporate Centre, Mumbai in the presence of Managing Directors – CS Setty, Ashwani Bhatia, J. Swaminathan and A.K Tewari along with Rana Ashutosh Kumar Singh, DMD – HR & Corporate Development Officer.
Dinesh Khara, Chairman, SBI said, “It is said that adversity introduces a man to himself. That thought is bought to reality by our nation’s COVID warriors and the efforts they made to battle through the pandemic. It is commendable to see how every police personnel sacrificed their safety to ensure the nation is safe, that we are safe. As a responsible corporate citizen of the nation, we must commemorate the service that was rendered to us and the supreme sacrifice. We must continue observing the safety measures necessary to control the spread of the pandemic and support the efforts of Police.”
Earlier this month, SBI contributed Rs. 11 crore to the PM Cares Fund, to support GOI’s COVID-19 vaccination drive. Last year, SBI committed 0.25% of its annual profit to support the fight against COVID-19 and made a significant contribution by supplying masks, sanitizers among others to the needy. The bank’s employees in their effort to support the nation through unprecedented times had also contributed Rs. 107 crores to the PM CARES Fund.
