The Mega Credit Delivery Camp, the first of its kind in Garo Hills, was organised by the State Bank of India’s Regional Branch Office in Tura today.
West Garo Hills Deputy Commissioner Ram Singh was the chief guest and also distributed sanction letters to around 50 borrowers in various credit segments from the district.
Speaking on the occasion, Singh highlighted the importance and tremendous service contributed by bank officials for the welfare of the people of the region. With the increase in demand for banking services, the DC advised them to coordinate with Common Service Centres (CSCs), which function like multiple service centres, so that banks can reduce their workload.
Stating that plenty of business opportunities are available in the region and that people from outside the state often come to do business here, he urged the local people to take up entrepreneurship and work with determination to reach future heights and thereby motivate others to take up entrepreneurial activities.
A few of the entrepreneurs from different credit segments of the district also shared their challenges and achievements and assured that they will make an effort to scale greater heights and contribute to the society.
