    Points of inconvenient poser(of primary concern to account holders) :
    Should / could not the Notification issued / made known just 2 days to go for the cut-off date, with due fore- thought / -sight, have been issued at least a couple of weeks ago :
    Is not the notification blatantly bereft of necessary details concerning – for example, –
    Fate of online remittances expected to be received on or after April 1, per standing instructions, to the credit of the bank account say, with Corp. Bank , already on record of the remitters/ payers.
    Not having been done, one feels strongly that, it is now for the related bank branches to ensure that this, and all such other aspects of no less relevance, – in case not had been taken care of by now- are duly taken care automatically / in the normal course , WITH NO ACTION FROM CUSTOMERS- for, that will only add to the numerous hardships already being faced with, on a daily basis, with no let–up so far, post covid 19 crisis >
    AGREE …?!
