IntroductionGram Tarang owes its genesis to Bapuji Rural Enlightenment and DevelopmentSociety (BREDS) a social developmental organization formed in 1983 to servethe most marginalized, vulnerable rural communities and focus on their socio-economic betterment through empowerment and sustainable livelihoodpromotion. BREDS ventured into financial inclusion space in July 2009 incollaboration with ATYATI Technologies and disbursed more than 200 Croresgovernment money earmarked for NREGS and Social Security Pensions tilldate in over 800 villages of Srikakulam district through its BusinessCorrespondent Agents. BREDS also ventured into the states of Uttar Pradesh,Bihar, West Bengal, Assam, Tripura, Odisha in 2010 and hived off the entirebusiness to a Gram Tarang Inclusive Development Services due to regulatoryissues.Inspired by the Gandhian philosophy of Gram Swaraj, or „self-rule‟, a group ofresidents of Dimili village (Kotturu Mandal, Srikakulam District) and other areasocial activists founded the BREDS. Initially, BREDS opened night schoolsspecializing in adult education. These volunteer-supported classes targetedAdivasis (tribal people) and members of „Other Backwards Castes‟ (OBCs) inDimili and nearby villages. The organization continued to evolve over the nexttwo decades and work with other target populations, but BREDS hasexperienced its greatest growth from 2001 until today. Through a combinationof teamwork, commitment, strong leadership, government support, and donorparticipation, BREDS is now recognized as one of the best NGOs in our districtof Srikakulam.

Our Bank has submitted a road map to implement the FIP using information and communication and technology mode with Business Correspondents net work i.e. branch less banking outlets. Bank has empanelled M/s Bartronics India Ltd as service provider to give an „end to end‟ solution for the FIP. Our bank is allotted with 1,149 villages with population above 2,000 for providing such outlets. Of which, 1,054 are located in Andhra Pradesh State. The Financial Inclusion Plan (FIP) covering all the villages has been submitted to Reserve Bank of India.

The CSPs
have been deployed after a due diligence process undertaken by the respective Branch Managers.Coverage of Villages having population above 2000:Total Villages allotted to 1149BankOut of the above Andhra Pradesh 1054 Outside AP State 95No. of beneficiaries to be 6 lacescoveredFinancial Inclusion initiatives: A.

Grain Bank SchemeBREDS is working with huge number of schedule tribe families. Majority ofthese families don‟t ensure food security during lean period. To avoid thisproblem and make food secure for all the season with community participationand self help, BREDS designed a program relating to promotion and revival oftraditional grain banks. Initially it was decided that BREDS provide grant fromthe WHH project in the form of grains to the target subhadayam. This grant issubject to the maximum limit of grain worth rupees ten to fifteen thousand only(according to the village population).subsequently additional grant would be
extended to superior performing groups, with the nature of enhancement of their savings. Community Based Revolving Funds BREDS is working with the schedule caste and tribal families in the Srikakulam district of Andhra Pradesh. Basically these families have the capability to practice some activity but due to lack of capital they are remaining as such. The community based revolving fund is a channel of support by BREDS through its WHH/GAA project, to the target schedule caste and tribal families in the target area to promote and improve their livelihoods with financial assistance. This ultimately improves the quality of life of the target families by increasing their income generation power. Making Insurance of the Unit and giving tag number to the Units.

Submission of documents to BREDS.the documents are like- Receipts of the beneficiaries,SHG resolutions, Subhodayam Resolutions, SHG pass book copy, repayment schedule from the beneficiaries, the purchase and vendor document, insurance copy and Tag number, photos of the units.
