History of UCO Bank
UCO Bank (formerly United Commercial Bank) was founded in 1943 by Sri Ghanashyam
Das Birla, the then Chairman of the House of Birlas. It is one of the
Nationalised Banks having a glorious past and tradition of service. It
is backed by 69 years of professional banking having a wide network of
branches through out the length and breadth of India. The Bank also has
strong presence in two very important South-East Asian financial centres
namely Singapore and Hongkong. This has helped the Bank in developing
a sound and strong customer base. The Bank has also made substantial improvement
in implementation and assimilation of latest information technology products
available in the market to offer better service products to the customers.
The Bank was nationalised on 19th July 1969 and is now a Public Sector Bank
constituted under the Banking Companies (Acquisition & Transfer of
Undertaking) Act, 1970.
