The 50-year old bank wrapped up its golden jubilee celebrations by adding yet another feather to its cap and surpassed its business target of Rs 19,720 crores by achieving a business mix of Rs 20,059 crores as against Rs 17,680 crores of last year, Patki said.

The bank has shown that it is possible to deliver qualitative growth without compromising on long term profitability, continuing to focus on two key principles in its business- building a stable and low-cost liability base, and winning clients by offering unique solutions,? he said.
He further said that as per the directives of the RBI, a board of management has been formed by the bank.
