“We are sincerely proud to that LankaPay Technnovation Awards 2022 honoured Bank of Ceylon as a ‘Digital Superhero’ by awarding it the Overall Gold Award for Excellence in Interbank Digital Payments’ for achieving the highest number of awards at the ceremony which included Gold Awards for the categories. We consider this as an achievement of our efforts to popularise digital banking solutions to all Sri Lankans around the country,” said Assistant General Manager Electronic Banking, Eranga Bandara.

The awards include: ‘Most Popular Digital Payment Product of the year 2021’, ‘Best Bank for Retail Payments’, ‘Bank of the Year for Financial Inclusivity’ and the Merit award for the ‘Best Common ATM enabler of the Year’.

General Manager K.E.D. Sumanasiri said, “I thank the bank’s staff members for their commitment and dedication towards achieving the bank’s mission to digitalise and empower the country. We as the No.1 Bank in the country will always strive towards digital excellence that will uplift our community at all times.”
