Regional Rural Banks India notes:
Regional Rural Banks were established under the provisions of an Ordinance passed on 26th September, 1975 and the RRB Act 1976 to provide sufficient banking and credit facility for agriculture and other rural sectors. As a result Five Regional Rural Banks were set up on 2nd October,1975,Gandhi Jayanti. These were set up on the recommendations of The Narshimham committee Working Group during the tenure of Indira Gandhi’s Government with a view to include rural areas into economic mainstream since that time about 70% of the Indian Population was of Rural Orientation. The development process of RRBs started on 2nd October,1975,Gandhi Jayanti with the forming of the first RRB, the Prathama Bank, Head Office at Moradabad (U.P.) with authorised capital of Rs 5 crore at its starting. As on 2nd October, 1975 Out of the remaining four RRBs in the country one was Set up at Malda in West Bengal under the name of Gour Gramin Bank,which was the first RRB in the Eastern Region of India.
The current structure of RRBs is that Central Government owns 50% , Sponsorship Bank holds 35% and State Government holds 15%.
India is eyeing a mega revamp of its regional rural banks (RRBs) and the plan includes consolidation of these lenders for better operational efficiencies in line with the government’s big rural focus.
The plan that the finance ministry is drawing up also envisages RRBs adopting differentiated banking strategies, such as targeting specific sectors, for a strong regional connect. Some RRBs will be merged with their sponsoring banks. There are 56 operational RRBs & the roadmap is to bring them down to 38 or below.
