The banks have been advised to introduce auto-alarming system in every branch as a security step so that steps can be taken immediately against any “unexpected situations,” said a circular issued by the central bank yesterday.
They have also been advised to take some necessary steps to make auto-alarming system more effective including setting up auto-door locks. Under the system, doors will be closed as soon as the alarm bells ring.
There will be pin codes to open the door of the branches. The alarm bell system will be equipped with laser beam so that the banks remain within security coverage even at nights, according to the circular.
Banks have been asked to attach motion detectors close-circuit cameras along with the alarming system.
