Stating that the agreement would work like a catalyst in infrastructural growth of the Jammu and Kashmir, Shah informed that the Bank would be extending the finance to JCB equipment buyers under “JK Bank Construction Equipment Finance”, a highly custommized and hassle-free product.
The nearest branch of the bank will promptly process the application and disburse the loan within 72 working hours, he added.
