Visit to Canara Bank, Founder’s Monument - NEIPL

A visit to the first ever office of Canara Bank was arranged for the students of CNSB on 7th July 2018. It was founded in the year 1906 by a visionary, philanthropist and a noble person with deep concerns for the social, economic, educational well being of the society, Sri. Ammembala Subba Rao Pai.

The branch functioned from 1906 to 1964 from this office and is now converted into a monument. A visit to a place with such ancient history is nothing less than a pilgrimage for all those who are associated with it. In that context the visit arranged is an attempt to link the past four generations of customers, staff of the Bank to the present so that the legacy of the great past is integrated with the presence.

The students were taken inside the monument and the artifacts preserved in the premises told the journey from 1906 to 2018 the events, people, their history appeared in unending kaleidoscope of the present. The students spent more than two hours within the premises and were supplemented by narrations from Sri Sathishchandra Shetty, Assistant Professor, CNSB, who himself was an executive at the Bank till recently. Other professors of the CNSB accompanied the students and helped co-ordinate the whole process. CNSB also acknowledged the co-operation and assistance of Canara Bank, Circle Office and Founder’s branch Mangalore for making the event truly rewarding and satisfying.
