With reports of misseling by bank employees, a Reserve Bank of India committee for the review of customer service standards at Indian lenders has submitted its report on Monday.
The six-member committee headed by former deputy governor BP Kanungo was given the primary mandate to evaluate and review the quality of the customer service, identify best practices, and suggest measures for making improvements.
The committee made recommendations including making the charter of customer rights enforceable, assessment of quality of customer service through periodic and thematic studies at regulated entities by the RBI, and training in soft skills of customer-facing employees to reduce misbehaviour.
