 “The bank was moving fast in the direction of popularising digital banking system among its customer base in rural areas,” said S. Ravindran, Chairman, KVGB.

“So far, the bank has developed 25 villages as full digital banking villages and has set a goal of bringing a minimum of 100 villages under the purview of digital banking by the end of this fiscal. All the 10 regional offices have been given the target of turning a minimum of 10 villages in their respective jurisdictions into digital villages by December 2017,” he said.
