HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SPEECH OF HON’BLE FINANCE MINISTER, GOVT. OF ORISSA SHRI P.C GHADAI • It is pleasure for me to be associated with you all present here and with the review of various schemes implemented by Banks and poverty alleviation
  3. 3. 3 programme implemented in the State. I must reiterate the credit is an important input that helps the farmers, the small entrepreneurs, need support from farmers. Investors also need support from farmers. Efforts should be made for recognition to the credit support to the farmers. Investment by farmers is a planned intervention by the Govt. Our effort should be for expanding the reach of formal credit to farmers of Rural poor. But in the context of CD Ratio. I would point out that although CD Ratio of all Banks in the State is 65.21% increase is not upto satisfaction. In some Banks it is below 50%. Banks like Canara Bank, Corporation Bank, IDBI Bank, Punjab National Bank, Punjab and Sind Bank, Syndicate Bank, Union Bank, Vijaya Bank, ICICI Bank, Indusind Bank, Baitarani Gramya Bank, and Rushikulya Gramya Bank have CD Ratio of below 50% as on 31.3.2010. Leading Banks like BOI, IOB, OBC have below national parameters of 60% (CD Ratio). I request all present here to surpass the national parameters of CD Ratio. As regards MSME development strategies, the Industrial Policy Resolution –IPR-2001- the robust Policy frame work. IPR-2007 aims at further forcing up the process. Requirement and development of MSME is focused on MSME development Policy – 2008. % of SME advance to total Advance is only 15.04% as on 31.3.2010. Credit is to the tune of 8490.89 Crores indented in this section. Similarly percentage of MSME advance to total advance is 12.80%. Total MSME advance is to the tune of 7228.33 Crores as on 31.3.10. Agril. And Allied though there have been progress, % of Agril. Advance to total advance is 31.59% as on 31.3.10 as against national parameter of 18%. Those who are legging behind are requested to achieve and improve. Banks like BOI, Bank of Baroda, Canara Bank, Syndicate Bank, Dena Bank, Corporation Bank, IDBI Bank, PNB, SBI, Indian Bank are below the national
  4. 4. 4 parameters. Pvt. Banks like ICICI Bank, Axis Bank are always far behind and at low level. 0% Banks are there. You try to correct yourselves and come to main stream. Handloom and Handicraft - This sector provides a very key progress to economy. This sectors provides and generates e4mployment. Chief Minister of Orissa announces a special package for Handloom weavers. Banks are requested to enhance flow of credit to this section. Micro Finance - Banks have a major role to play. Act as a credit provider and then as a chase Agent. Money lenders are charging a very high rate of interest from poor farmers. SHG groups, training should comprise of their business, their product. They should acquire knowledge. I request all of you to redesign your business strategies to promote specific financial inclusion as corporate social responsibility. Financial Inclusion will lift the financial condition of the poor of my State. As regards SHG, Bank linkage scheme can be regarded as most potent incentive, since independence. There are large numbers of SHGs in the country. Savings from members of SHG teaches financial management. I say to Pvt. Sector Banks though their CD ratio is above 60%, finance to Agril., finance to weaker section, finance to DRI is far below the stipulations of RBI. In case of some Pvt. Sector Banks it is seen that to be nil. In last SLBC meeting it was discussed at length. Pvt. Sector Banks are requested to improve their finance in these sectors. Otherwise I have to rethink and l shall be forced to issue directions to Govt. Agencies of Public Sector Undertakings,
  5. 5. 5 Semi Govt. Agencies not to park their surplus fund with these banks. Again I remind all of you to cooperate and be liberal to extend credit to various sectors. Another point, NREGA Programme has been adopted in whole country. Govt. wants to stop corruption and we want to make NREGA payment through banks. So BC Model to be adopted every where. Only SBI has adopted. They are helping the Govt. to facilitate payment through their agencies. Still other Banks are hesitating. All Regional Heads are there. I request to adopt this BC Model. Thank to SBI and other Banks should adopt. I request to all those who are legging behind please correct yourselves. Let us all join our hands for progress of the State. So far fiscal development is concerned; we are much ahead of other State. Right from CM to Official of the State, we all work for development of economic condition of the State. The spheres where we are legging behind few years back, now we are developing. Now we want to be No.1 State of the country. Banks are required to play a very key role, a dedicated role, a committed role to be rich. State is very rich. But people are very poor. People of a rich State should be rich. HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SPEECH OF SHRI R. N. SENAPATI. IAS AGRICULTURE PRODUCTION COMMISSIONER, GOVT. OF ORISSA. State Level Bankers Committee is a forum where we discuss various issues connected with the socio economic development of the State. I find that we should concentrate broad policy issues rather than Micro Finance issues in the Agenda. One thing, I would like to high light that CD Ratio has been declining might be due to Global recession. There has been recovery. Our CD Ratio is improving. But if we compare the CD Ratio of Dec, 2009 and March, 2010, the CD Ratio is decline. CD Ratio is still a matter of concern. As Finance Minister told some Pvt. Sector Banks and Commercial Banks are legging behind and discouraging. So we have to increase CD Ratio, otherwise investment will not be there in the country. This is No.1. Second thing is Priority Sector advance of quarter ending December, 2009 and March, 2010. It is also declining from 65% to 60%.
  6. 6. 6 Besides, issues which Chairman, UCO Bank and Finance Minister has raised that is Financial Inclusion. RBI is also very keen on this issue. So we should assure 100% Finance Inclusion. District has been divided among different Banks. So they must ensure that all the villages are covered. Hon’ble Finance Minister also points out regarding NREGA payment through Banks. Not only NREGA payment but also various payments of Govt. Department is also made through Banks. SBI has come forward to take some Panchayat. All Banks should come forward to take all the Panchayats, where there is a will there is a way. We should achieve 100% Financial Inclusion. We can short out various issues. HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SPEECH OF SHRI B.K BHOI, REGIONAL DIRECTOR, RBI, BHUBANESWAR I have joined as R.D, RBI. I took charge on 26th April. Earlier I was RD, RBI for UP and Uttarakhand. I look forward to work with you in a fruitful manner. SLBC is a unique forum where regular that is RBI, Top Govt. Officials and Banks meet. Our State is going down and down, what I read from News Papers. This gives me great sense of anguish. Our State is rich. People are very laborious. Despite such richness why our State will go down and down. I assure you all cooperation from RBI. Agenda-wise discussion LDM Nabarangpur and Malkangir raised the issue of facing problem in achieving 100% Financial Inclusion. Shri R.N Senapati told we will talk to the Collector. LDM asked to enhance the cash holding of Banks. They face many problems due to low cash holding. Shri R.N Senapati told Finance Department will also pursue. Let us achieve 100% Financial Inclusion by 31.3.2011. You (LDM, Malkangiri) have done excellent job in Nabarangpur. Some more effort requires for Malkangiri. We should be No. 2 State in the country. DIF will dispatch a letter under my signature on Secretary, Finance. I will follow Malkangiri specially. Roadmap was finanalised on the spot. Action taken report discussed Point-wise.

ISHUP – Issue raised by LDM, Nabarangpur Shri R.N Senapati told that let us unanimously try for development allied activities. Poverty can not be elevated through wage employment.

No. 16 - The Director, NHB told that we have sponsored 1960 applications. Only 350 loan sanctioned. So pendency is very high. Cashew Processing Units need long Term loan to be sanctioned. Shri R.N Senapati told that There is a tremendous potential in this sector. There is vast scope in Horticulture. So, I think we should concentrate more and more in this sector. We have to focus right from Horticulture where there are vast scopes. Sub-Committee of Agriculture to review the credit flow to Horticulture regularly. Lot of insensitive are there. Tie up is missing. Sufficient number of applications can be sponsored. We are discussing sufficient credit flow to this sector.
