Even those slow to warm up to technology are beginning to use internet banking. It is often more convenient than banks that do not have such services. Sooner or later, most people find it hard to resist. Yet some still do not know what internet banking is.
You can make a variety of transactions by way of internet banking. You can pay bills directly from your checking account. This saves you the cost of a stamp. It also gives you more leeway in how quickly you need to pay the bill. If you have to mail it, you have to send it out long ahead of time.
Funds can be transferred from a checking account to a savings account, or vice versa. You can fill out loan applications for anything from signature loans to mortgages online. You can even use internet banking for investments. All these services are available at both types of banks.
You can view your transactions whenever you want. If you have software for your computer, you can download the information from your internet banking account to your virtual check register, in Quicken for example, and reconcile automatically.
You can access your internet banking account any time, day or night. As long as you have an internet connection of any kind, you are in business. You can do your banking from a laptop in a hotel room, or from the computer in your home. You will find it easy to get the information and do the transactions you want.
Extra caution is taken when setting up internet banking systems. If you have an account online, you will have a complex password. The information will be encrypted. There might be security images you can choose from that no one would have a way of knowing. Furthermore, if you try to make risky transactions, you will be asked more security questions.
Online banking is becoming more and more popular. You can do most of it without leaving your home, if you wish. Internet banking is a safe and convenient way to handle your money.

ebanklanka is a virtual banking solution to be introduced by Intermax Solution where all the commercial banks in the country as well as the Central Bank and the government institutions will be linked online.
"We started developing the trilingual website in September last year and completed it early January," said CEO Intermax Solutions, Dilan Sanjeewa. He said Internet Banking is the modern trend in banking which enables the customers to engage in all types of transactions through the net be it balance inquiry, fund transferring, utility payments or opening new accounts.
The Central Bank and the Bankers' Association is guiding the project.
In our country too there are local and foreign banks who have introduced Internet Banking services to their customers but just a handful of customers are benefited by them as most customers are not aware of the benefits.
The mission of Intermax Solution (Pvt) Ltd is to function as a medium to enlighten the Sri Lankans on Internet Banking and modern economic and social trends. This website ebanklanka will outline the history, the functions and the services of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka. This will further educate the people about the Fiscal policy of the country, orders and regulations issued to the public by the Central Bank and also about the treasury bills.
