Home » Bank's History

The birth and the spectacular growth of the Bank in a comparatively a small span of 50 years can mainly be attributed to the desire to cater the needs of the business community in general and small traders in particular, encouraging the community to save and channelize these savings for productive purposes leading to economic progress and prosperity of the community. With the passage of time and with gaining of strength and stability, the Bank spread its wings to other areas such as financing of Small Scale Industries, large industries, professionals, individuals for consumer durables, vehicles etc. as also acceptance of deposits from Non-Resident Indians. Our motto is "CUSTOMER CARE" and thereby total customer satisfaction and our goal is to BETTER to BEST.
