Teachers’ Day, rather Teachers’ Week, was celebrated in a unique way by State Bank of India. Besides felicitations of distinguished teachers at around 400* centres across the country, the Bank presented its unique e-Collection and e-Payment products to the Educational Institutions. ‘StateBankCollect: Collect Fees online, even if your Institution does not have a website’ evoked a lot of interest.

Mr B. Sriram, Managing Director, SBI, informed that the Bank had started online collections in September 2003, with a few hundred SBI customers booking IRCTC tickets through Net Banking. This has grown to an average of 1.6 lac tickets per day booked online by our customers, using SBI Net Banking or ATM-cum-Debit card or mobile. ‘StateBankCollect’, a simplified electronic collection product, is most suited to Educational Institutions desirous of collecting fees online. With over 300 satisfied institutions, their students and the parents already using this multi-modal solution, e-Teams of SBI have, during the week, spread knowledge of this product to over 1000* institutions, from S V Arts & Commerce College in Kutch, Gujarat, to St. Stephen’s School in West Khasi Hills of Meghalaya.
