Mr. S Ramakrishnan, Special Officer of the DCCB, Coimbatore said that the new branches were proposed at Somanur, Edayarpalayam, Ganapathy and P N Pudur in Coimbatore and another four offices, including bank's main branch in Coimbatore and Tirupur is being renovated.
Besides giving a facelift to the interiors, eight branches of the DCCB are also expected to be hooked on to the CBS platform very soon.

The bank is also in the process of installing ATMs.
"This drive is to attract young customers," Mr. Ramakrishnan said and added that the DCCB was also targeting other financial services as well, both for increasing its revenue and coping with the present scenario.
