Lockers are meant to provide anonymity and privacy. The primary purpose of lockers is safety. Part of the safety comes from the fact that nobody knows the content of the lockers. We do not take insurance cover for the contents of the locker since customers do not disclose the contents. It is not possible to insure the contents without knowing the value of the contents. However we can insure the contents of the locker on cost to customer basis provided the customer declares the contents and value.
It is not true to say that our locker rentals are higher than the rentals charged by banks. Our Locker rentals are nominal. Further we provide service 6 days a week and our operating hours are longer than that of banks, who allow customers access only from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm or 10.00 am to 6.00 pm depending upon the branch location. Our Locker rooms are also far more spacious and comfortable since they are air-conditioned and with Biometric mode of operation. Thus the services provided by us are superior to the service provided by bankers. In short we are providing a far superior service at a nominal cost.
The returns for the company have been worked out on the basis of the rentals charged plus the notional earnings on the advance rentals. If we were to pay interest on the advance then we would have to charge a higher rental to protect the company’s returns.
If in the course of assessment of an individual the IT department asks for details of the locker held by the concerned person, we are duty bound to provide the information.
