9th day - Good Friday

Day started at 8 O'clock in morning for me as chief manager has told me to come early. Today an another officer was scheduled to come in bank at 8 who was manager of this branch between 2004-08. Chief Manager and me waited for him until 9:15 and we started our work. There was some shortcomings in the loan files of 2004-08 period and that's why only that manager was able to help us in the matter. Some of the borrowers were long defaulter and there a/c was NPA since a long time. After 11, I came back to my routine work. In the evening time it was something special for me. I managed ATM feeding work myself. It was my first day of ATM feeding and the same day we found it short by 15000 in physical balance (the total balance available in ATM counted by human) vis-a-vis Admin balance (the total balance of ATM as per transactions done). We left the difference as it was for automatic revarsal of admin balance to correct state. Let us see what happens next!

Bye Bye
