On amalgamation of erstwhile three Gramin Banks now termed/treated as transferor Banks, newly established Paschim Banga Gramin Bank has four districts viz. Howrah, Hooghly, Burdwan and Birbhum as its area of operation.
Howrah, Hooghly and Burdwan districts traditionally have immense potential both for agriculture and industry, whereas Birbhum District is not so advanced in terms of agricultural activities and mostly has mono cropped land area. Revised and modified industrial policy at the State Level is accelerating the pace of Industrial Development in the aforesaid districts. Besides, introduction of non-traditional crop cultivation and multi dimensional approach for rising food production arising out of new thrust areas in the agricultural policy, may contribute to upliftment of the economy of the aforesaid districts.
