Karimnagar: Employees of various state-owned banks boycotted duties as part of one-day protest against privatisation of banks, seeking immediate revision of wages here on Wednesday, under the aegis of United Forum of Bank Unions (IFBU).

He sought the government to revise the wages to the employees under 10th Pay Revision Committee (PRC).
