An orientation programme of IPPB for the Sakhis under MOI PRAGATI was held in Goalpara District recently. After this orientation our Sakhis will be able to avail themselves of services such as easy bill payments, doorstep banking services, instant money transfer through IMPS and other remittance services.
In addition, they will be able to get direct bank transfers from schemes such as MNREGA, scholarships, social welfare benefits and other Govt. subsidies easily (if one is eligible). They will also benefit of Virtual Debit card, QR card, phone banking, SMS banking, free quarterly email statements and SMS alerts.
Rural banking activities are primarily intended to serve small businesses and communities in rural areas and support the implementation of national development in order to improve the welfare of the people, serve the needs of farmers, small businessmen who are trying to get equal opportunity.
