What are the new IT-driven initiatives you have planned to introduce in the Cooperatives and Banking Department of Government of Uttar Pradesh?

The department of cooperative banking in the Government of Uttar Pradesh has a three-tier system. The first-tier is UP Cooperative Central Bank (UPCB), headquartered in Lucknow, the second-tier is the District headquarters and Tehsil headquarters where the cooperative Central Bank is located and the third-tier is Primary Agricultural Cooperative Society which is operational at the rural level, named as Primary Agricultural Cooperative Society. So far, we have one UPCB in Lucknow, 50 District Cooperative Central Banks as well as Urban Cooperative Banks in 75 districts of Uttar Pradesh.

Of the 50 District Cooperative Central Banks, 36 are better performing cooperative central banks. In addition, we have 7,500 primary agricultural societies of which around 2,500 societies are better performing.
