Srinagar, Nov.19: J&K Bank distributed 350 Kissan Credit Cards (KCC) to the farmers at a KCC mela in Gund, Kangan. So far the Bank has sanctioned around Rs 20 crore through more than ten thousand KCCs issued in favour of the farmers in Ganderbal district.
 The KCCs were handed over to the farmers by Itrat Hussain Rafiqui, Additional District Development Commissioner, Ganderbal, who presided over the function as chief guest in presence of J&K Bank cluster head, Muhammad Amin Khan, the bank in a statement said.
 Those present on the occasion included, District Social Welfare Officer Ganderbal, Qazi Irfan, Head, J&K Bank B/U Gund, Hilal Ahmad, SHO Gund and some panchs.
 Besides huge number of farmers and customers of the bank were present on the occasion.
 Itrat Hussain, in his presidential address, hailed J&K Bank’s role in taking banking facilities to the doorsteps of people. “Be it ATM network, hassle-free finance to farmers, disbursal of NREGA payments and other social security benefits,  J&K Bank has revolutionised the concept of ‘banking at doorsteps’ in a topographically and geographically difficult and distinct state like J&K”, he said.
 Urging farmers to avail KCC facility, Itrat stressed that KCC is a credit facility that farmers can avail at will. “It helps you meet your emergency farming requirements like purchase of fertilizers, seeds, pesticides etc” he added.
 Earlier, the cluster head, Muhammad Amin Khan described KCC scheme as a relief and comfort to the farmer community “especially in times of emergency”.
