The proponent of the statement “the world is a global village”, must probably have seen the future. Back in the 90’s who would had probably thought of a scenario where one would be at his comfort zone and perform bank transactions online and offline without having to go through the rigorous processes of queuing up in the bank premises and being treated like I’m being offered a favour for something that would most probably benefit the bank the most! Yes, it would benefit the bank because of the so-called bank charges being levied on my account.
