Seylan Thilina Sayura: A boon to Nrfc and Rfc account holders
NRFC and RFC customers reap benefits from Seylan Bank's unique scheme called Thilina Sayura. The Thilina Sayura scheme is yet another value added innovative product that Seylan Bank introduced to the market in April this year, in recognition of the invaluable contribution made by our expatriate workers to the economy by virtue of their inward remittances, a bank press release said.

Seylan Bank having identified most of the needs of account holders has formulated a scheme that works on probability rather than possibility enabling every account holder to enjoy some benefit during the customers banking relationship, the bank statement added.

This is the only scheme that is not lottery-based and allows the family members of the account holders to benefit from the account holders' savings. Under this scheme, NRFC and RFC account holders would benefit during the accounting relationship. All NRFC and RFC account holders maintaining a minimum balance of US$ 500 and above for a period of six continuous months will qualify to apply for rewards under this scheme. The first batch of recipients under the Thilina Sayura scheme was rewarded at a ceremony held at the Seylan Bank headquarters on 2 October 2002.
