IMPHAL — Manipur Governor Anusuiya Uikey on Friday released “State Focus Paper 2024-25” prepared by the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) during the State Credit Seminar at Raj Bhavan in Imphal.

The paper outlays a total credit potential of INR 2963.17 crore for Priority Sector activities in the state of Manipur as defined by the Reserve Bank of India.

Speaking at the event, the governor said that the Potential Linked Credit Plan prepared by the NABARD has been released by aggregating district-wise credit schemes in the form of “State Focus Paper” for the year 2024-25.

She said that the economic development of the state will take place on the basis of this plan and that all bankers and government officials will have an important contribution in achieving this target.

The governor continued that in order to enhance the socio-economic status of the villagers of Manipur, their income level and quality of life, it is necessary to fulfil the targets set by the NABARD for the development of rural infrastructure.

To ensure prosperity of rural areas, agriculture, cottage and village industries, handicrafts, rural crafts and other economic activities and MSMEs, it is necessary to provide credit facilities, market and fair prices for the promotion and development of the sector.
