"We have seen a spurt in social media posts pertaining to the functioning of the bank''s branches and offices... There have been many such posts critical of the bank not closing down operations in the context of the COVID-19 outbreak, little appreciating the role of the bank at such a critical time," the sources said, quoting a circular.
