“We are committed to supporting the state’s economy by opening new bank branches. While the new branches will generate direct employment for 1,000 people, a number of indirect jobs will also be added,” Roy said.

He claimed that the bank opened over 170 new branches in the state in the last financial year, and the lender has completed its target in implementing all the state and Central governments’ financial schemes.

“We give special impetus to women entrepreneurs and businesses run by women. We also focus on providing financial literacy to them and link them with various digital platforms to expand their business,” Roy said.

The bank, which has 7 per cent market share in UP, will focus on rural employment as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities.
