About SLBC

Back Ground

 

State Level Bankers’ Committee (SLBC) came into existence under Lead Bank Scheme as per RBI guidelines. SLBC is an inter-institutional forum at State level ensuring co-ordination between Government and Banks on matters pertaining to banking development.

Canara Bank is the Convenor Bank of SLBC, Kerala.

SLBC facilitates effective implementation of development programmes in the areas of poverty alleviation, employment to un-employed, providing banking outlet in un-banked areas, training, financial literacy etc. SLBC coordinates with the State government in implementation of various govt guidelines especially in respect of Priority Sector lending, Financial Inclusion etc.

The role of SLBC is reinforced by the High Level Committee constituted by RBI to review Lead Bank Scheme.

 

The SLBC Keral is co chaired by the Chairman of Canara Bank and the Additional Chief Secretary of the State Government. General Manager of Canara Bank , Trivandrum Circle is the Convenor of SLBC.

 

A Study Group, on the Organizational Framework for the Implementation of the Social Objectives, headed by Prof. D. R. Gadgil first recommended adoption of an 'Area Approach' for development of banking and credit structure in the rural areas.

A Committee of Bankers on Branch Expansion Programme of public sector banks appointed by Reserve Bank of India under the Chairmanship of Shri F. K. F.Nariman (Nariman Committee) endorsed the idea in November 1969. It also recommended that each bank can concentrate on certain districts where it should act as a 'Lead Bank'.

In terms of the above recommendations,

Lead Bank Scheme

was introduced by Reserve Bank in December, 1969.

 

LEAD BANK OF DISTRICT

Under the scheme, each district of the country has been allocated to a specified commercial bank which is called as the Lead Bank of the district. Metropolitan Cities of New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkatta and Chennai were excluded from this arrangement.
