Utmost emphasis should be given to attaining all business targets of Rajshahi Krishi Unnayan Bank (RAKUB) in the current fiscal so that it can uphold the pace of earning profit.

The present government aims to build a skilled, strengthened and inclusive financial management system in the country. Besides, the government is committed to reaching the banking services to the people's doorsteps, reports BSS.

RAKUB management came up with the observations while addressing the daylong performance evaluation meeting of zonal and branch managers at the conference hall of Bangabandhu Hi-tech Park in the city on Thursday.

Chairman of the Board of Directors Roisul Alam Mondal addressed the meeting as the chief guest with General Manager Atikul Islam in the chair.

Commissioner of Rajshahi division Dewan Muhammad Humayun Kabir, RAKUB Managing Director Niranjan Chandra Debnath, Deputy Managing Director Abdur Rahim and General Managers Maksuda Nasrin and Babar Ali also spoke.

In addition to all Departmental Heads of Head Office, nine Zonal Managers, Divisional Audit Officers, Zonal Audit Officers, Principal of RAKUB Training Institute and Project Director of SECP were present at the review meeting.

RAKUB has been operating its banking activities as the largest development partner in all 16 northwest districts of Rajshahi and Rangpur divisions targeting its agricultural sector and all its sub-sectors.

Roisul Alam Mondal urged the zonal managers to perform duties with utmost sincerity and honesty to speed up the ongoing farmers-level lending activities.

Quality banking and lending activities can be the best way of boosting agricultural production to meet the gradually increasing food demand in the country.

"So, there is no way but to make all the credit programmes need-oriented and time-befitting. Emphasis should be given on reaching banking services to the farmers' doorsteps collectively," he said.

The chief guest laid stress on bringing all the existing potential sectors and sub-sectors of agriculture and its processing under qualitative and quantitative financing for making the country's northwest region economically vibrant.

Referring to the importance of good planning, he gave directives to attain cent percent targets in loan disbursement and recovery, particularly classified loans and deposit collection.

Managing Director Niranjan Chandra Debnath called for boosting inter-institutional communication besides expediting monitoring activities in all branches to attain the cherished goal.

He also urged the zonal and branch managers to disburse loans to the priority fields of farmers and agriculture side by side with other potential sectors.
