Happy Deepavali

The annual Festival of Lights is once again upon us. As we celebrate the triumph of light over darkness with the warm glimmer of diyas and vibrant Rangolis, let’s also keep the tradition of gifting shining on.

Safe Management measures may mean a slightly different Deepavali this year, but technology can help keep traditions alive, such as sending an eGift safely from a distance. Use DBS eGift to send your love and blessings directly into the accounts of your loved ones. And when you eGift, you could be rewarded too.
