According to the Sun Horoscope of BOB's establishment date, Saturn and Ketu's presence in the wealth house might create some hindrances in its economic growth. However, as Mercury, Venus and Rahu are transiting through its Birth Chart, Jupiter will provide gains to the bank.
According to BOB,s nationalized date (19th July, 1969)'s Sun Horoscope, Saturn will transit through its Sun and Rahu will transit through its Birth Rahu taking a U turn between July 2006 and March 2007. However, after this period slow and steady growth is indicated for BOB.
The period starting from 10th December 2008 till 21st May 2009 can be considered as the golden period for BOB. It will create new history in the sector of banking.
May Lord Ganesha bless this bank with more and more depositors in the years to come!
