Itrat Hussain, in his presidential address, hailed J&K Bank’s role in taking banking facilities to the doorsteps of people. “ Be it ATM network, hassle-free finance to farmers, disbursal of NREGA payments and other social security benefits, J&K Bank has revolutionised the concept of ‘banking at doorsteps’ in a topographically and geographically difficult and distinct state like J&K”, he said.

Urging farmers to avail KCC facility, Itrat stressed that KCC is a credit facility that farmers can avail at will. “It helps you meet your emergency farming requirements like purchase of fertilizers, seeds, pesticides etc” he added.

We have devised customized products as per your various requirements to ensure economic empowerment through creative economic support and intervention”.
