President FCIK, Shakeel Qalander expressed his delight over the record achievements made by bank during past few years and said, “I hope the bank would continue to work hard in order to meet its ambitious Rs 1 lakh crore business turnover target by 2012.”
“The J&K Bank, as only listed company in the state, has enhanced the investors’ confidence by announcing a significant 220 per cent dividend to its share-holders,” he said, adding that the state needed successful financial institutions like the bank to have public investments as well as over all economic development.
The President, FCIK also expressed satisfaction over the increase in the priority sector as well as other lending to various economic segments adding that it was quite convincing that about 70 per cent of the total credit flow in the state is alone met by J&K Bank.
