The report stated that the ex-chairman resorted to coercion in getting loans illegally. It was also recommended to cancel several bank loans, vehicle loans issued to several individuals including the ex-chairman Raghava Reddy and to review the ongoing construction works approved by the managing committee.
The bank administrator Jeevan Patil informed that a profit of Rs 494.11 lakhs was earned during the period 2016-17. A month’s salary would be given an incentive to those on the pay rolls as an August 31, 2017. The budget proposals for the year 2017-18 were approved at the general body.

He claimed that he and the managing committee have made efforts to bring the bank out of losses. He alleged that he was being targeted by TRS leaders because of political vendetta.
