20th May 16 HSBC to Close Half of India Branches in Digital Banking Push
HSBC Holdings Plc plans to shut almost half its branches in India and rely more on digital banking to expand its consumer business in the South Asian nation. The London based bank will cut 24 of its 50 branches. The outlets to be closed account for less than 10 percent of HSBC retail customer base in India. HSBC said it remains committed to India, where it is also shutting its global private banking operations.
