SSB BECAME A PART OF PRADHANMANTRI JAN-DHAN YOJNA

 

          Hon’ble Prime Minister of India launched “Pradhan Mantri Jan-Dhan Yojna”. The scheme aims at providing  ‘Universal access to Banking facilities’

 Director General, Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) has proposed to Prime Minister Office that SSB campuses deployed on Indo-Nepal Border and Indo-Bhutan Border may be utilized for rolling out PMJDY. It has been informed that SSB is deployed on 1751 kms Indo-Nepal Border and 699 kms of Indo-Bhutan Border. SSB officers and men regularly interact with the rural population on both these borders and conduct a number of Civic Action Programmes for development, and also Medical Civic Action Programmes and Veterinary Civic Action Programme. These areas are extremely backward and the banking facilities are scarce. He has also offered  services of SSB as nodal agency for the scheme in the border areas of Indo-Nepal and Bhutan.

 

The proposal of DG SSB was accepted and Ministry of finance, Govt of India issued a letter to their coordinators for contacting SSB units. Instructions have been issued to the field units for participation in the Scheme as facilitators and asked the Commandants and Area Organisers to approach Branch Managers and Lead Bank’s officers in the AOR. SSB has also offered that the ATMs may also be located at our Coy Hqrs/ BOPs.  SSB has been able to motivate above one lakh civilians to open their accounts.

 This way SSB became part of the Pradhan Mantri Jan-Dhan Yojna. The efforts of SSB are well taken by villagers and Bank officials both and the outcome is encouraging details of achievements as follow
