 PNB celebrates the 156th Birth Anniversary of its Founding Father, Lala Lajpat Rai 


Mumbai, 28th January 2021: Nation’s leading public sector bank, Punjab National Bank (PNB) celebrated the 156th Birth Anniversary of its founding father, Sh. Lala Lajpat Rai at its headquarters in New Delhi. Shri CH. S. S. Mallikarjuna Rao, MD & CEO along with EDs, CVO, senior executives and staff members paid tribute to Sh. Lala Lajpat Rai by garlanding the bust. The MD & CEO also felicitated Ms. Aakansha Choudhary, staff member and a well-known Para Shooter for receiving the prestigious Rani Laxmi Bai Award from the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Sh. Yogi Adityanath on 24.01.21. The award is a special scheme by government of Uttar Pradesh for honouring the eminent sportspersons of the state. 

Lalaji, fondly remembered as the "The Lion of Punjab," or “Punjab Kesari” was actively associated with the management of the Bank in its early years. Under his leadership, PNB became the first ‘Swadeshi’ bank ever to begin operations, solely on Indian capital - an impressive credential till date. The founding board was drawn from across India, consisting of different faiths with the common objective of establishing a truly national bank to further the economic interest of the country.
