The workshop brought together bank officials from 11 States and Union Territories with the goal of empowering the Lead district Managers to facilitate the adoption of two important schemes:

Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyothi Bima Yojana (PMJJBY) and Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana (PMSBY) among the eligible citizens. As part of this drive, officials of the Bank will raise awareness by organising successful camps in every Gram Panchayat and Ward in each district across the nation.

This initiative underscores SBI’s unwavering commitment to financial inclusion. It seeks to ensure financial security through PMJJBY and PMSBY.
