Speaking on the launch of the product, Mr Chintan Haria, Head – Investment Strategy, ICICI Prudential AMC said, “Over the past decade, PSU banks have undergone a transformation on account of their improving efficiency, customer centric approach, technological superiority and improving risk management frameworks.
