ANCL General Manager Abhaya Amaradasa said that with the implementation of this customer centric agreement customers will get a quality service more conveniently and confidently through the Bank of Ceylon branches.

This will be initially implemented though eighty BoC branches in the Western Province and customers can take their classified advertisements directly to any BoC branch in the province.

A seminar will be held for representatives of all BoC branches in the province.

He said that the strong relationship for decades between ANCL and the BoC as its main banker and the two top players can go a long way in expanding this facility to other parts of the country providing a high quality service to its customers.
