The bank has adopted suitable policies for speedy and effective redressal of customer grievances. The first level in case of a grievance is the Branch which has first-hand knowledge about the customer and the details of the complaint. The customer may lodge a written complaint at the branch which will be duly acknowledged along with a copy of the complaint. If the complaint is not resolved within a reasonable period or if the nature of resolution does not meet the standards expected by the customer, the grievance may be stepped up to higher levels as shown below:
The unresolved grievance may be taken up with the Zonal Nodal Officers who are entrusted with the duty of redressal of grievances which have not been resolved at the branch level. (For contact details of the Nodal Officers please click here)
In case the grievances have not been resolved to the satisfaction of the customer by the two levels as above, the matter may be taken up with the Principal Nodal Officer of the Bank:
Asst. Gen. Manager (Branch Service)
The Catholic Syrian Bank Ltd
Head Office, St. Mary’s College Road
Thrissur 680 020
Phone: 0487 6619291
The Zonal Nodal Officer or the Principal Nodal Officer, as the case may be, will acknowledge the grievance within five days of receipt and start proceedings to resolve the grievance within a maximum period of three weeks. The customer will be suitably apprised about the progress of the actions and the reasons for the delay in the process of resolution.
If the customer feels disappointed with the solutions provided by the various levels within the bank, or if he does not get a satisfactory reply within a period of one month, he may approach the Banking Ombudsman located in the respective state capital.
