Prior to this announcement, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) lifted the restrictions imposed on Bank of Baroda (BoB) in October of the previous year. These restrictions had prohibited the public sector lender from onboarding customers to its mobile banking app, bob World.

In a regulatory filing, Bank of Baroda stated that the RBI, through its letter dated May 8, 2024, informed the bank of its decision to lift the aforementioned restrictions on bob World with immediate effect. Consequently, the bank is now permitted to onboard customers through the bob World application in accordance with the applicable guidelines and extant laws and regulations.

As a result of this development, Bank of Baroda will resume the onboarding of new customers to the bob World application while ensuring strict adherence and compliance with regulatory guidelines.

Bank of Baroda stock price was trading at Rs 255.10 per share on NSE, down Rs 7.55 or 2.87 percent.
