Comparing the loan distribution statistics to the previous year, the increase in crop loan disbursal is evident. For last year’s Kharif season crops, a total of Rs. 1,564 crore 95 lakh 61 thousand was allocated, accounting for 86.86 percent of the target. This year, the allocation has increased by 7.58 percent, reflecting the bank’s dedication to empowering farmers and meeting their financial requirements more effectively.
