Bank of Baroda has completed the IT integration of 132 former Vijaya Bank branches. With this move, 152 branches of the erstwhile Vijaya Bank have been integrated, enabling customers to get the banking experience as provided by Bank of Baroda. Post the IT integration, customers visiting these particular branches will be using the banking services of BoB instead of Vijaya Bank. Before the initiation of the migration process, all payment channels such as ATMs, NEFT, RTGS and IMPS, UPI, of Vijaya Bank and Dena Bank were integrated with BoB.
The merger of Vijaya Bank and Dena Bank into Bank of Baroda came into effect in April last year. The merger saw 2,135 branches of Vijaya Bank and 1,777 branches of Dena Bank merge with BoB. “We took an incremental approach for migration. As a test case, we first migrated one branch of Vijaya Bank and then 10 branches. Earlier this month, we migrated another set of 10 branches, and this weekend we migrated 132 branches,” Sharad Saxena, BoB’s chief technology officer said.
