The DC instructed banks to adhere to the specified targets for each bank, especially in the category of Social Security Schemes, and to achieve these targets by the next quarter. Moreover, he stressed the importance of ensuring the functionality of digital payment systems, particularly mobile applications.

He directed all banks to conduct awareness camps during the summer season and to meet their targets, taking into account the unavailability of people during the winter.

Lead District Officer (LDO), Neha Mattoo, urged banks to conduct a comprehensive review of the Potential Linked Credit Plan. She also encouraged banks to voice their concerns so that solutions could be devised during the quarterly meeting itself.

The performance of banks under various government-sponsored schemes like Pradhan Mantri Employment Generation Programme and Kisan Credit Card was also assessed.

Representatives of the CRISIL Foundation, operating the Centers for Financial Literacy (CFL), discussed the centers they’ve established in various blocks and requested banks to collaborate with them during field visits.

The meeting was attended by ADDC, Leh, Sonam Nurboo, along with bank branch heads and representatives from the 18 public and private banks operating in Leh district.
