Bank of India as part of its philosophy to reach masses and to celebrate 100 years launched a scheme last year, not just one more of its various schemes, but one that involved people’s participation. The project aimed at skill upgradation and sustainable development, particularly in rural areas is with people and for the people. 128 Villages, 79 districts, 17 states across the country and is benefiting 300,000 people and about 60,000 households. Bank of India is also supporting Nirmal Gram Yojana to bring civic amenities in villages. It is playing an active role in providing computerised village kiosks for e-governance, use of non-conventional energy and water management. This was observed by Team Skoch at places like Thiruvellur in Tamil Nadu, and Wardha in Gujarat.
