After nine years of operation, NRBC Bank has stepped into its tenth year. Together, the Directors and Sponsors of the Bank celebrated nine years of actualizing the dream. On occasion, the Sponsors said that NRBC Bank is working for the betterment of the masses to their roots through its diverse banking services. We are working closely with the current Board of Directors and Management on these welfare activities. All non-residential Directors and Sponsors attended the event virtually and physically, organized by the Head Office under SM Parvez Tamal, Chairman of the Bank, who presided over the event.
On behalf of the Management, the Managing Director and CEO, Golam Aulia, greeted the Chairman of the Bank, SM Parvez Tamal, Directors AM Saidur Rahman, AKM Mostafizur Rahman, and Shareholders Mohammad Ali Chowdhury Mamun and Arif Sikder. Besides, on the ninth anniversary, Iftar and prayer mahfil was organized in all Branches and Sub-branches across the country on Sunday.
NRBC Bank, the dream company of 53 NRBs, was established in 2013. During the discussion, the Sponsors said that they are far ahead of all contemporary banks regarding humanitarian and inclusive banking activities. Sub-Branches are being opened across the country to provide banking services to the people in the remotest of areas. To create employment in the rural community, the Bank is engaged itself in micro credit with a low-interest rate. We are working closely with these innovative activities of the current Board of Directors. Unfortunately, an insidious quarter has become jealous of the Bank’s unimaginable progress and has resorted to propaganda. Attempts are being made to create divisions between Directors and Sponsors. However, we fully support the current activities and plan to face these propaganda and ill activities against the Bank jointly.
Rafikul Islam Mia Arzoo, Vice Chairman of the Bank, said that NRBC Bank embodies good governance by setting a milestone. The Bank that went nearly bankrupt in 2016 is now a leader and followed by other banks.
SM Parvez Tamal, Chairman of the Bank, said, we are providing banking services to our customers by increasing our skilled manpower and expanding our services through technology. Employees of different levels of the Bank have worked tirelessly to extend banking services to cities and rural areas. Micro-credit loans are being disbursed to marginalized people through sub-branches. We, the NRBs, have successfully achieved the goal we aimed for during the last nine years. We want door-to-door employment and the development of rural areas. For this, we are working through sub-branches, microcredits, and partnership banking.
