104-year-old opens Kerala bank’s senior citizen centre

Thrissur (Kerala) : A 104-year-old man inaugurated a special service centre of the South Indian Bank (SIB) for senior citizens here Wednesday, 29th January 2014.

Meleth Ouseph, who hails from the cultural capital of the state, Thrissur, which is also the headquarters of the bank, was the chief guest by virtue of being the oldest customer of the bank.

“I was 19 when the SIB was launched and have been watching the progress of the bank with keen interest,” said the farmer, who lives with his son.

Bank’s MD and CEO V.A. Joseph said this new facility is being opened for the convenience of senior citizens and is being handled by experienced staff.
