Under PMSBY, Chattisgarh Rajya Gramin Bank is the best in the state with more than 11.5 lakh enrolment and 96% renewal persistency. As many as 450 claims for `9 crore have already been paid under PMSBY. Under MUDRA loans to the weaker sections, the bank did more than 119% (`297 crore against targeted `250 crore) for FY2018. From a meagre 1.67 lakh in December 2015, Aadhar base has peaked to 42 lakh as of now. This covers about 95% of active savings bank accounts, highest amongst SCBs in the state.
Claims Gupta: “We are pursuing financial inclusion initiatives as a great business opportunity. This can be seen by incessant flow of deposits in PMJDY, DBT, MUDRA loan growth, social security to the farmers and poor rural people earning tremendous goodwill for the bank.”
The bank has been awarded the Best RRB in the industry for its pioneering work by industry chambers, SKOCH, NPCI and others. All IT and digital initiatives have resulted in improvement in its customer base.
