US demand to seize Iran tanker rejected, as Iranian tanker leaves from Gibraltar

The Iranian oil tanker that caused several international disputes has departed from Gibraltar after the British overseas territory rejected a US demand to seize the vessel. The super-tanker -- which had been detained since July 4 off the coast of Gibraltar -- left the coast on Sunday evening. Authorities in Gibraltar have not confirmed its departure. Gibraltar seized the Grace 1 on July 4 on suspicion it was transporting oil to Syria in breach of European Union sanctions. The seizure by Gibraltar authorities came amid surging tensions in the Gulf after several alleged Iranian attacks on smaller tankers. Src: https://bit.ly/31RsfW4

SBI aims to eliminate debit cards to promote digital transactions

The State Bank of India is aiming to end debit cards from the banking system. The bank is planning to make this decision to promote more digital transactions and eliminate plastic cards. SBI chairman Rajnish Kumar at the annual FIBAC said, “It is our wish to eliminate the debit cards, and am sure we can eliminate them”. He added that digital banking platform like 'Yono' is the key to achieve a debit card-less country. The SBI has already set up 68,000 ‘Yono cashpoints’ across the country and will soon set up over 1 million within the next 18 months. Kumar also claimed, "In five years, there'll be a limited need to have plastic cards in your pocket".Do you think the idea will prove to be customer-friendly? Src: https://bit.ly/2z9fOIC
