Ministry of Finance requests vaccination of all bank and NPCI employees in priority

The DFS has also received representations from the IBA, HDFC Bank and NPCI on the issue. NPCI staff, too, have played a critical role, it said. At present, the Covid-19 vaccination is available for those above 45 years of age.

Data with the Indian Banks’ Association reveals that there have been 600 deaths due to Covid-19 in the banking industry as of December 31, 2020. The sector has about 13.5 lakh workers. The letter comes amidst the second wave of the pandemic and concerns over mutant strains.

“Bank employees have played a critical role over the past year in ensuring that bank branches remain open and functional, and are providing the complete suite of banking services to their customers,” the DFS noted in its letter. Bank employees have worked through the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown. Bank unions have been requesting that bank staff be treated as frontline workers and are vaccinated as early as possible.
