The video comes in the midst of a nationwide lockdown to contain the spread of Covid-19.

'Necessity is the mother of all inventions', stands apt as a bank employee in India came up with a creative idea of disinfecting cheques using hot iron.

Twitter users applauded the out-of-box idea of the cashier who was filmed holding cheques with a pair of tongs and then ironing them in a desperate attempt to disinfect them.

The video was shared on Twitter by Indian business conglomerate Anand Mahindra along with a caption: 'I have no idea if the cashier's technique is effective but you have to give him credit for his creativity'!

According to a report in NDTV, the banker in the video is an employee of the Bank of Baroda whose creative method of disinfecting the cheques has won the internet, but it is not clear whether the measure is even effective.

However, video of the bizarre idea of the banker has collected over 250,000 views and nearly 24,000 'likes'. The Bank of Baroda also responded to the viral video and thanked Anand Mahindra for sharing it online.
