various activities. The bank also provided an amount
of Rs 2.57 crore to 4,57 women self-help groups, he
For the housing sector, the loan portfolio of the bank

227 crore during 2001. The bank will continue to focus
on rural housing through its two housing loan schemes,
the Gram Niwas Yojana and Sahyog Niwas Yojana.  
Bhattacharyya said the bank had a network of 13
branches in the area catering to corporate and large
commercial customers.  
In 2003-04, the bank?s deposits reached Rs 150,82
crore and advances stood at Rs 7,551 crore in Madhya
Pradesh and Chhattisgarh. In the same financial year,
its profits rose to Rs 351 crore from Rs 326 crore in
