Our initiatives are aimed at building an empowered and financially inclusive rural India through specific goal oriented departments which can be categorized broadly into three heads: Financial, Developmental and Supervision. Through these initiatives we touch almost every aspect of rural economy. From providing refinance support to building rural infrastructure; from preparing district level credit plans to guiding and motivating the banking industry in achieving these targets; from supervising Cooperative Banks and Regional Rural Banks (RRBs) to helping them develop sound banking practices and onboarding them to the CBS platform; from designing new development schemes to the implementation of GoI’s development schemes; from training handicraft artisans to providing them a marketing platform for selling these articles.
Over the years our initiatives have touched millions of rural lives across the country. Our milestone achievements have been India’s achievements as well. The SHG Bank Linkage Project launched by NABARD in 1992 has blossomed into the world’s largest micro finance project. Kisan Credit Card, designed by us has become source of comfort for crores of farmers. We have financed one fifth of India’s total rural infrastructure. We were pioneers in the field of watershed development as a tool for sustainable climate proofing. It’s a long list indeed and we welcome you to understand us better.
