The initiatives taken by BOI :

Project Connect

Bank of India’s new chief has launched Project Connect, an initiative to revive the bank that has suffered huge losses for two consecutive years due to a sharp rise in bad loans.

It is called Project Connect because the Connect between internal staff and clients is not as strong as it was in olden days. So, many accounts are poached by other banks,” Dinabandhu Mohapatra, MD & CEO of the state-owned bank, told ET. He said the new initiatives are aimed at reducing bad loans, improving the share of low cost deposits and retail credit.

Further, the bank has opened a new vertical ‘Premium Client Care’ which will cater to the needs of the 1000 top customers identified from the top five centres of the country. “With this initiative, poaching can be stopped because now most PSU banks are focusing on recovery, and in the process, they are losing good customers. We should not concentrate only on firefighting, we should be proactive for the future,” he said.
