  1. Capital raise


Despite logistical challenges arising due to COVID-19 situation, we have made significant progress with Clix group for the proposed amalgamation of Clix Capital Service Pvt Ltd and Clix Finance India Pvt Ltd into the bank. However, there may be slight delay in the mutual due diligence and preparation of  documents for regulatory requirements due to Covid situation and travel restrictions. Hence, both the parties mutually agreed to extend the exclusivity period till 15th September 2020 .


Bank  will continue to share information on the developments for funds raising in public domain as and when they materialise.


  1. Launching of new digital offering


To improve overall productivity and simultaneously reduce turn-around-time, the bank has decided to launch a bouquet of digital services. Our Digital offering will enable customers to access services from  anywhere, anytime and through any device. It will encompass entire customer-journey digitally – from on-boarding of customers, lending online until collection and closure of a loan account.


Bank is planning to start with digital on-boarding of customers through a multi-channel facility including self-service Mobile Application, self-service portals, or assisted on boarding. With this offering bank will on-board customers by validating their PAN and Aadhaar online and make Video KYC facility available. This facility is expected to reduce customer on boarding turn-around time .


Bank  will gradually move to digital lending, especially “gold loan” that has low risk weightage. Our digital “express gold loan” product will enable a borrower to avail credit faster and will be integrated with the collection or recovery process. Upon launch of full-service customers would be reminded in advance to pay their due and entire follow-up will be automated


  1. Profitability: The Bank continues to enforce cost reduction measures both of direct and indirect costs. Further the Bank focusses on capital free loans like Gold Loans, Govt Guaranteed loans to optimise profitability without straining capital funds
