“These computers are being donated to develop computer technology knowledge among the students who leave schools and HNB considers this as one of its social responsibilities”, R. Thiyagarajah said in a press meet conducted after handing over the computers.

“HNB will offer financial assistance to open 125 new libraries in Jaffna peninsula schools,” he said.

“HNB has been functioning in Jaffna for the past 37 years. 22% of the saving deposits in HNB in the whole country is contributed by the Tamils of North and East and this is a good example for the saving habit of the Tamils,” he added.

Thiyagarajah denied the accusation that the saving deposits of the Tamils are being used only to develop the South.

He pointed out that around three thousand million rupees had been issued in the last few years as loans for developing agriculture and fishing in Jaffna peninsula alone.

Due to the war it was only possible to give micro financial help but now HNB is ready to release bigger loans for the development of agriculture, fishing and other investments, Thiyagarajah said.

He further said that it was matter of pride that HNB had been working along with the people of the peninsula sharing their lives even during the war.

HNB is prepared to improve and develop the possibilities of obtaining loans for the people who had suffered unemployment and loss of livelihood during the last 30 years due to war, he added.

Thiyagarajah opened a new branch of HNB in Point Pedro Wednesday along with HNB North East Senior Regional Manager, A. V. Beeadle.
