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.
