Legislator asks banks to provide youth loans, ‘without delay’


Today:- Sep – Local Legislator Balbir Singh Sidhu while addressing district level consultative committee meeting of banks held at Vikas Bhawan in Mohali on Tuesday stated that banks should provide loan to youth for self-employment without any delay. This must be done in order to help them in starting their own business.

Addressing the meeting deputy commissioner Gurpreet Kaur Sapra said financial education-cum-awareness camps at village-level should be organized and a report in this regard should be submitted to the office of deputy commissioner. She directed the bank officials should ensure that the beneficiaries under different schemes should use and operate single account so that the requisite subsidy could be provided without any delay and clearance towards bank account could also be ensured timely.
