BRIGHT LIGHTS! CM’s decision to waive crop loans of more farmers hailed Addressing the media, the General Secretary of All India Regional Rural Banks Association (AIRRBA) Venkateshwar Reddy said they were fighting for the equality in all aspects on par with commercial banks for three years with the seven RRB Associations combined as United Forum for RRB Unions. RRBs constituted in 1975 by the Parliamentary Act had been serving for the poor and weaker sections of the society and small and marginal farmers with 21,500 branches in 670 districts across the nation. RRBs are contributing lion’s share in the implementing government schemes by lending loans to 90 percent to the priority sector and 70 percent to the farming sector successfully for 42 years, he said. But, the government is trying to privatise the RRB banking sector which is quite atrocious. We, employees of RRBs across the nation have been discriminated in contrast with commercial and sponsor banks in wages, service, PF, pension, and other allowances. -Continued on P6 Kajal to romance young actor 14 03 Lanterns being lit up by children during a night walk at Peoples Plaza recently in the city Photos: Srinivas Setty
