With a view to provide immediate succour to the calamity affected persons banks have been advised by the Reserve Bank to observe minimum formalities for enabling such persons to quickly open bank accounts. The accounts may be opened with

a) introduction from another account holder or

c) introduction by two neighbors who have documents as at (b) above or
