Posted 22/10-10 at 22.59

For the past two years, rain or shine, wheelchairs users and other disabled people from Seri Kepong Baru have had to do their banking transactions outside the Persiaran Mergastua BSN branch.

Disabled people reduced to services outside the bank

Handicraft maker, Mehboob Sulaiman, said she was not keen on having her transaction done in the open as it makes her a target for theft. Trader A. Rajoo said that on one occasion, he and his wife were forced to leave the bank as there was no bank officer to help them.

The president of the Damai Disabled Persons Association said the bank should consider installing disabled friendly facilities and treat disabled customers like any other.
