Had I not superannuated, I would have completed 28 years in Axis Bank today. I joined Axis Bank, then known as UTI Bank on 5/12/94. At that time, it had just two branches – the first one at Ahmedabad that was inaugurated by Dr Manmohan Singh the then Finance Minister of India on 2nd April 1994 and the second one at Fort, Mumbai that had started operating just a few days back in the last week of November 1994. The central office at Cuffe Parade had just one small portion functional, the rest of the premises being under civil work.
I was fortunate to be part of the journey that saw Axis Bank getting transformed from humble beginnings to a financial conglomerate and a behemoth that it is today!
Therefore, 5th December will always remain a very special date for me and while my journey at Axis might have come to an end, I have no doubt that Axis will continue its great journey ahead, growing from strength to strength and celebrating many jubilees in the process.
All the best to the team at Axis Bank.
