Karimnagar: Karimnagar District Cooperative Central Bank (KDCCB) has gained a profit of Rs 51.12 crore during 2020-21 financial year despite severe financial crisis due to outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown.
With its profits to a tune of Rs 35 crore during 2019-20 financial year, the DCCB was recognised at national level for its performance and by consecutively winning national awards for the last four years from National Federation of Cooperative Banks limited (NAFSCOB).
KDCCB has excelled in decreasing its non-performing assets (NPA) from 2.15% during 2019-20 to only 1.75% during 2020-21, which is a milestone in the history of the cooperative banks. The bank staff with the support of their customers has strived hard to reduce the NPA during their month-long special drive of recovery.
The DCCB with 67 branches has collected deposits of Rs 1,903 crore and registered a growth rate of 16.03 % and loans and advances at Rs 2,070 crore, which was increased by 15.96 %. Overall growth registered is 16 % and the business stood at Rs 3973 crore, a meagre shortfall of Rs 27 crores against the bank target of Rs 4,000 crore.
During 2020-21, the bank had provided loans of Rs 1177.69 crore for the farm sector against the target of Rs 980 crore. Following the government instructions to all banks not to collect the interest of loans from March to August due to corona induced lockdown, the KDCCB had benefitted its customers to the tune of Rs 32 lakh interest waiver.
Despite the financial crisis, the DCCB had opened six new ATMs in last financial year, making it a total of 32 ATMs in the district and it is having a total of 67 branches in the district. The bank had proposed to open five new branches during this financial year in Koheda, Manthani, Muttaram, Chandurthi, Thunguru and Veernapalli in the integrated Karimnagar district.
