UCO Bank and Yes Bank to collaborate with two Russian banks to streamline payments

UCO Bank

Yes Bank and UCO Bank have formed a partnership with two Russian banks. Through this deal, both of these institutions will get India closer to conducting business with Russia. Let us remind you that following the attack on Ukraine, various nations, including the United States, put economic sanctions on Russia. However, India’s trading connections with Russia have not changed significantly.

UCO Bank has partnered with Gazprom Bank, while Yes Bank has also formed an arrangement with Russia’s Petersburg Social Commercial Bank (PSCB). This information has been acquired, according to a report in the Times of India.

Its sources have told more things, in which information has been given about the country’s largest state-owned bank State Bank of India, i.e SBI, also finding payment options with Russian banks.

The deal between Uco Bank and Gazprom Bank comes as the Reserve Bank of India implements a system to facilitate international payments through special Vostro accounts. In the absence of such standard procedures, overseas payments were made in Euros or other foreign currencies. These primarily occur through Gulf nations, whose exports from India have been harmed.
