J&K Bank today formally engaged 41 women SHG members, identified by JKRLM, as Business Correspondents of the Bank
. Bank’s DGM Manju Gupta handed over Micro ATMs and biometric authentication devices to these freshly engaged BCs at the Bank’s Corporate Headquarters in presence of AGM Rafi Ahmad Mir and other senior officers of the Bank.
Commenting on the occasion, DGM Manju Gupta said, “With these Digipay Sakhis as our Business Correspondents, we have taken a step closer to serve people, especially women living in rural hinterlands, at their doorstep through our prime alternate banking channel – the BC network.
These young and energetic ladies shall now provide basic banking services to the people in general and women in particular of such areas across Kashmir Valley at their doorstep.
The bank is shortly engaging BCs for the Jammu region under the similar arrangement with JKRLM.”
