"The COVID-19 continues to spread across many countries and in India and the same has resulted in significant volatility and decline in the global and local economic activities. The situation continues to be uncertain and the Bank is evaluating the situation on an ongoing basis. The major challenge for the Bank would arise from volatility in cash flows. Despite these events and conditions, there would not be any significant impact on Bank's results in future and on the going concern assumption," Bank of India said.Also read: Sovereign Gold Bond V Series opens for subscription: All you need to know
