Dimapur, February 13 (MExN): A financial awareness programme was conducted at Delhi Public School Dimapur organised by Ombudsman RBI on Monday.
In his speech, the chief guest Nungtok Jamir, pro-vice chairman advised the students to see through the possibility of what they could do or be best at, before choosing a career. “To make right choices, you will need to discover what you like in your life,” he said while also urging the students to develop a curious mindset and inculcate the habit of asking questions. He encouraged the students to not give up on their dreams but “work hard or hard works.”
Ombudsman RBI, Sangma enlightened the gathering on the working of the Ombudsman and also demonstrated through power-point presentation how various bank frauds were committed. He said the banking Ombudsmen in the country were appointed by the Reserve Bank of India to receive and consider complaints relating to various services rendered by the banks. He said the Ombudsmen were also empowered to levy penalty against defaulting banks. Sangma said that the Ombudsmen have a record of not keeping a complaint unresolved for more than two months. According to Sangma, 77, 000 cases were resolved in 2010 while 72,000 cases were solved in 2011. “The Ombudsmen is a prompt and inexpensive way of getting your grievances addressed,” he said.
He cautioned the public against getting fooled by SMSes informing them that they have won huge amount of money. Sangma also advised bank customers to always press clear/cancel buttons on ATM keypads after using the service. Students, teachers and RBI officials attended the financial awareness programme.
