RRBs | Regional rural banks in India and the whole details


Regional Rural Banks










Regional Rural Banks (RRBs) also known as Gramin banks, are Indian scheduled banks (Government banks) operating at regional level in different States of India.
The primary role of the RRB is to be the banker of the backward and rural areas of our country.
The big nationalized banks and the private banks are mostly located in cities and towns. Although they try and open some branches in the rural areas as well…..but their reach is limited. So RRBs were created within a state.
RRBs are looked over by the NABARD (National Bank forAgricultural and Rural Development) and also by a mentor bank which is usually a big nationalized bank like SBI or PNB etc…
However, RRBs may have branches set up for urban operations and their area of operation may include urban areas too.
The area of operation of RRBs is limited to the area as notified by Government of India covering one or more districts in the State. RRBs also perform a variety of different functions. RRBs perform various functions in following heads:
-  Providing banking facilities to rural and semi-urban areas.
- Carrying out government operations like disbursement of wages of MGNREGA Workers , distribution of pensions etc.
- Providing Para-Banking facilities like locker facilities, debit and credit cards.
- Small financial banks.
- financing dairy works, fishery works or all kind of country side valid works and
  Businesses.
- financing village school children in need of bank accounts to get scholarship, bicycles and
  school uniforms.





Brief History of RRBs
Regional Rural Banks were established under the provisions of an Ordinance passed in September 1975 and the RRB Act 1976 to provide sufficient banking and credit facility for agriculture and other rural sectors. These were set up on the recommendations of The Narshimham committee Working Group during the tenure of Indira Gandhi's government with a view to include rural areas into economic mainstream since that time about 70% of the Indian Population was of Rural Orientation. The development process of RRBs started on 2 October 1975 with the forming of the first RRB, the Prathama Bank with authorized capital of ₹5 Crore at its starting.

Recent Update
The government of India is looking at the possibility of merging regional rural banks (RRBs) operating within the same state and has urged the state-owned banks to explore such options, as it wants further consolidation among RRBs. It eventually wants to bring them down to a more manageable number of 10-15. 

There are 56 RRBs functioning in the country, and 
State Bank of India, the largest bank, is the biggest sponsor with 14 RRBs. Already, around 10 have been merged which will be effective from April 1 this year. 



 



“Ideally, we will like to have them reduced by 36 by the end of this fiscal,” said a senior government official, adding the idea is that rather than three or four regional lenders operating in a state, there should be one bank which leverages its strong regional and market connect. 

“In some lead banks which have more presence in a particular area, they can take over the stake of another lender in an 
RRB for purposes of synergy and efficiencies,” he said. 

At present, the Centre holds 50% stake in RRBs, while 35% and 15% are with the sponsor banks and state governments, respectively

In 2015, the government had passed the Regional Rural Banks (Amendment) Bill, which seeks to enhance authorization and issued capital of RRBs, strengthen their capital base and bring flexibility in the shareholding between central government, state government and sponsor bank.


The finance ministry has already directed public sector banks (PSBs) to consolidate operations in the same geography and take into account operations of other state-run lenders. “Bank boards have been asked to draw up business unit-wise approved plans, closure of nonviable branches,” said the above quoted official. 

“Further, strengthening RRBs will help them play a greater role in 
financial inclusion and meeting credit requirements of rural areas,” the above quoted official said. 

The government in the past few years have been trying to consolidate RRBs. Earlier in January, three regional rural banks (RRBs) — Punjab Gramin Bank, Malwa Gramin Bank and Sutlej Gramin Bank — were merged into a single entity. 

In February, it approved merger of two RRBs in Karnataka — Kaveri Grameena Bank and Pragathi Krishna Grameena BankCanara Bank will be the sponsor bank for the merged entity.
