As many as 240 Assistant Managers and 26 System Managers were inducted today into service in different Central Cooperative Banks at the district level.
Joining an orientation programme for the new entrants virtually, which was organised at Convention Centre, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik said that this will enable these banks to have quality manpower at the front office and infuse professionalism in their functioning. The farmers will benefit from this by way of better service delivery under financial inclusion and credit dispensation, the Chief Minister added.
He hoped the momentum would be sustained in the days to come.
Saying that small and marginal farmers constitute over 90 percent of our population, the CM said that the cooperative sector plays a pivotal role in the socio-economic development of farmers by providing necessary impetus to their agricultural operations through credit inputs and marking support.
He further said that the Co-operative Banks and Primary Agricultural Cooperative Societies (PACS) provide around 60 percent of the total crop loans disbursed in the State.
Almost the entire paddy procurement operations and procurement of other agricultural produce are done by these PACS, he added.
In recognition of their potential in service delivery to the people, the CM said, the State Government has been giving emphasis on the strengthening of their human resources and technology up-gradation.
