Shillong: State Bank of India on Monday launched
mobile banking facility for providing services to villagers at
their door-steps.

SBI Managing Director A Krishna Kumar handed over the
"Bank on Wheels" vehicle to Meghalaya Rural Development
Society at the SBI Shillong Branch premises here.

Kumar said the vehicle would cover unbanked areas and
create financial literacy and awareness of banking habit among
the rural masses.

"A total number of 662 unbanked villages were allotted to
SBI to be covered with March 31 next year and already 496
villages were covered," Kumar said.

He said opening of bank accounts would be very simple for
villagers in the state and they would only need to produce a
certificate from the headman along with photographs.
