A Bank that does not believe in locks

A Bank that does not believe in locks

There exists a place in India called Shani Shinganapur in the Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra. There is no provision of locking in any of the houses. The UCO bank proposes to set up a branch in that locality. People there have implicit faith in Lord Shanidev who is the presiding deity and who takes care of its inhabitants. There is a strong belief that if anyone commits any crime in Shani Shingnapur, he cannot escape and will get caught within no time. The Lord will mete out exemplary punishment.

The UCO Bank has embarked on a unique experiment – it wants God to guard its assets and the assets of those who bank with UCO Bank. Its branch would have doors but these would not be locked - an ATM would also be installed near the premises.

However, the police are not amused. They feel that the bank is inviting trouble because, in the event of any robbery, the police would have to get involved.
