He said that the banks should open more branches in rural areas so that people residing there can avail of financial benefits.

He also directed Lead Bank Manager Mr Manjit Singh Jaggi to provide him details of banks, who have granted less amount of loan to weaker sections of society, whereas their target was more. He said that after seeing the details he would write for initiating departmental action against such erring officials.

Mr Gulati directed the bank officials to make sure that the Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana is successful in the district. He said that the survey regarding opening of bank accounts under this Yojana is near completion but he has come to know that the bank accounts were being opened at a slower pace.

He said that under the first phase only one bank account is being opened in each household.

It was observed that several bank officials skipped the meeting and this was taken seriously by the ADC Mr Supreet Singh Gulati, who asked his staff to write to their superiors for departmental action.
