ITANAGAR: Arunachal Pradesh Chief Secretary Naresh Kumar on Friday lamented on the poor performance of the banks and other financial institutions in the State.
Chairing the state level Bankers Committee (SLBC) meeting at his office, he pointed out that the records are indicating that the banks and financial institutions are not working in the desired direction with the credit extended to the people for the priority sector still very low.
