DFCC Bank is living up to its reputation as a Bank for everyone with the introduction of a bundle of benefits for vehicle permit holders.

In addition to offering zero margins and concessionary commission for LC (Letters of Credit), DFCC also provides funding assistance through tailor-made personal loan schemes for permit holders, Vice President Liabilities and Trade Business Development, Anton Arumugam said.

The Bank has also arranged special insurance packages through our insurance partners and to add to customer convenience we also offer 0% installment plans on insurance premiums through our credit cards, he said at an interview with the Business Observer.

Q. Who will benefit under this new scheme?

A. Vehicle permits are issued to senior government servants who have served the nation for a long period of time and this campaign has been designed as a mark of gratitude to them.

As we understand that these individuals are often pressed for time due to their work schedules we offer personalized service in order to minimize hassle.

This includes sending the customer an SMS Alert once all the documents are received by the Bank and then opening of the Letter of Credit.

The Bank promises to provide the customer with a copy of the Letter of Credit within one hour of the receipt of the documents.
