The Bank, through its flagship CSR programme Parivartan, has set up several such PSA plants in hospitals across the state and country. The bank installed this PSA plant to strengthen the healthcare infrastructure in the city.

“HDFC Bank is with the nation in fighting covid and supporting frontline workers,” said Mr Ahmed Zackaria, Branch Banking Head Karnataka - HDFC Bank. “The Bank is conscious about the hardships people are going through during this pandemic. We have extended every possible help under our flagship CSR programme Parivartan.
