Urban cooperative banks – cooperative credit societies working at grass root levels

Cooperative societies formed with the sole purpose of granting credit facilities in urban areas called as Urban Cooperative banks. These banks created to encourage lower/ middle-class people about the habit of depositing their savings into the cooperative banks of India. They also support self-employment activities of lower/ middle-class people by providing small amounts of credit for a short-term period. Urban Cooperative Banks controlled by the Reserve Bank of India under the provisions of Banking Regulation Act, 1949. These banks are also known as primary cooperative banks and registered under the State cooperative societies Act or Multistate cooperative societies Act, 2002. Apnasahakari bank and Ahmedabad Mercantile bank are some of the prime examples. Get the list of Types of Banks in India from here.
