About SLBC » Overview

This is one of the most important fora under the Lead Bank Scheme and has proved highly effective in quickly implementing policy decisions especially under emergent situations like natural calamities. The State Level Bankers’ Committees (SLBCs) have been constituted, following instructions from Government of India in April 1977, as an inter-institutional forum for co-ordination and joint implementation of development programmes by all financial institutions operating in a State. It comprises the representatives of commercial banks (including RRBs), State Co-operative Banks (StCB), Land Development Banks (LDB), NABARD, RBI, etc. Representatives of various organizations from different sectors of the economy like retail traders, exporters, agricultural graduates (who wish to start agri-clinics/ agri-business), farmers' unions and some other organizations, who wish to protect the interest of their members, may also be invited as special invitees in SLBC meetings for discussing their specific problems. The meetings are chaired by the Chairman/Executive Director of the convenor bank. The forum reviews the banking developments in the State with special reference to Annual Credit Plans, Government sponsored programmes, flow of credit to priority sector, branch expansion, Credit Deposit ratio, etc. The SLBCs are also expected to take up for consideration, such issues as have been raised by the member banks or by the State Government authorities and questions or inter bank differences of views and approaches remaining unresolved at the District Consultative Committees (DCCs). The meetings of the SLBC are to be held on a quarterly basis.
