Banks including, country's largest lender State Bank of India (SBI), have informed customers about the likely inconvenience due to the strike.
The strike call has been given by the United Forum of Bank Unions (UFBU), an umbrella body of all bank unions.
There are 27 public sector banks in the country with employees strength of about 8 lakh.
