This is apropos Hasan Shariq’s letter ‘Banking employees’ woes’ (Aug 27). The writer has well described the woes of the bankers.

I second his argument that the State Bank of Pakistan is extremely strict about bankers arriving at their workplace before 9 o’clock.

The job nature of bankers does not allow them to leave their work place during office hours in spite of the fact that the banks usually require their staff to be in office after office hours.

One may usually find the bank staff in their respective branches till 8pm. Decisions to open branches on Sundays usually happens for the collection of income tax and other government duties.

As a regulator senior SBP officials should make surprise visits to banks after office hours and if any staff is found in any bank’s premises, the bank should be fined.
