Assam CM Requests More Banks in Rural Areas

In a meeting with Union Minister of State for Finance and Corporate Affairs Anurag Thakur, Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal asked the Finance Ministry for increasing the number of banks in rural areas.

CM Sonowal said that setting up of bank branches in the remote areas particularly in tea garden areas will empower the rural populace financially and will lead to greater financial inclusion.

Minister Thakur assured the Chief Minister that he would attend to it and maintained that besides bank branches, he would take a personal interest in organizing bank correspondents and dak sevak in the remote areas of the state so that the rural population would be within the ambit of banking services.

He added that Assam is very much in the priority list of the Central government, as the Finance Ministry has enlisted many incentives for the state. Regarding the CM’s request, the Union Minister said that the Centre is sincerely working towards a paradigm shift in the industrial landscape of the North East under North East Industrial Development Scheme 2017.
