In his letter he has requested the Finance Minister to instruct all the banks – Public Sector, private sector, co-operative sector banks, foreign banks, DFIs, Payment and Small Finance banks – to provide separate toilets for women employees, women customers and to women connected with the office in all bank branches and offices throughout the country. S. Venkatesan’s letter has been duly acknowledged by the FM on 7th February 2022.
