Digitization has changed the way people transact online. This has also impacted banking transactions. A few years ago, one had to visit the bank’s branch for most of the transactions. Things have changed drastically after 2018. Nowadays, several transactions can be completed from your smartphone without visiting a bank. You can transact online even on bank holidays. For example, if you live in Panaji, you can make an online fund transfer even on a bank holiday on a Saturday in Goa.
