Implementation : SBI Gram Seva is a holistic development program aimed at bringing a socio-economic change by adopting villages in rural areas and making villages self-reliant. The objectives of the programs are:

A) To make use of government schemes/services for activities to benefit the individuals

B) To raise awareness of online banking services, government schemes and train villagers to access information online

C) Improving infrastructure in the villages and providing basic facilities for individuals

D) To involve the Panchayat Village Self Government in development programmes, and to create an environment that encourages the participation of individuals in rural asset creation and community development to make the village self-sustainable

The key focus areas for the program are infrastructure, education, healthcare, sanitation, digitization, skill development, livelihood, government convergence, women empowerment, environment and waste management. With this initiative, we are aiming at bridging the gap between the underdeveloped areas of the society and the urban areas by providing easy accessibility to information for school students to ensure their growth and development and have thus set up community information centres, Wi-Fi, Smart Classrooms, Computer Education facility in schools, remedial classes for students, scholarships to meritorious students, etc. We have also conducted cleanliness drives, water connectivity and organised campaigns for women empowerment.
