Allocation of Districts:

All the districts of the country have been allocated to the banks (public sector and to a few private sector). The bank, which has been assigned the lead bank responsibility, is called Lead Bank of the district and such district for the Lead Bank shall be termed as Lead District. The distribution of districts was mainly done on the basis of certain criteria like size and resources of a bank, geographical contiguity, and ability to undertake lead responsibilities.

The State Bank of India has been assigned lead responsibility in 2 districts of UT Ladakh namely Leh and Kargil.

SERVICE AREA APPROACH:

Service Area Approach introduced in the year 1989 by RBI is the concept to accelerate the pace of Rural Development. The main feature of this approach is the emphasis given to credit planning process with the involvement of gross root level functionaries from banks and Developmental agencies at block level. The Branch Managers/ village level workers of Developmental agencies have to conduct surveys in the entire village falling in their service area taking into consideration the infrastructure and market potential of the area. These grass root level functionaries interact through Block level Bankers' Committee meetings thus paving way for compilation of realistic Service Area/ Non service area branch credit plan for each bank branch operating in a block. The Annual action plan/ District credit plan should be drawn up on the basis of updated village profile realistic projections. The unit of planning as envisaged under Service Area Approach is "Village" and therefore, the credit plan has to start

from the village and aggregated at grass-root level, i.e. first at branch-level, thereafter at block level and finally at district level. Thereafter the District Credit Plans submitted by the Lead Banks in the Districts to the SLBC/UTLBC Convenor are aggregated by the SLBC/UTLBC

Convenor into Annual Credit Plan / Annual Action Plan.

 

Preparation of Annual Credit Plans:

The Block credit plans compiled from the branch credit plan are put to deliberation/ approval in the District level consultative committee meetings. The credit plan has to start from the village and aggregated at grass-root level, i.e. first at branch-level, thereafter at block level

and finally at district level.
