(A centre for Knowledge Sharing, Problem solving and Credit Counseling for the Rural Community)

Bank's passion for Rural Development

Bank of Baroda, since its inception on 20th July 1908 by the great visionary Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekward III, has been in the forefront for social commitment with its innovative approaches and products. A passion for agriculture and rural development and to serve the common man is ingrained in the Bank's philosophy.

In the past, the Bank has taken a number of initiatives such as opening of specialized outlets of Gram Vikas Kendras (GVKs) and Multi Service Agencies (MSAs). Baroda Swarojgar Vikas Sansthan (BSVS) is another initiative for capacity building by providing appropriate training for skill upgradation to unemployed youth and women for their gainful employment.

Centenary Year commitments

During the Centenary Year, the Bank is committed to continue its initiatives towards Corporate Social Responsibilities. Baroda Grameen Paramarsh Kendra (BGPK) - a centre for Knowledge Sharing, Problem solving and Credit Counseling for the Rural Community, is one of such initiatives.


For the rural community, especially for the farmers, there is a big "Knowledge Gap" in financial literacy, better farming practices, technology adoption, diversification of opportunities, market linked prices, value addition services offered by various institutions, women empowerment and also for employment opportunities for rural youth. In addition to this, the deficiencies/ ignorance about credit related repayment during distress situations call for credit counseling.

With a view to assist the rural community, the Bank has conceptualised "Baroda Grameen Paramarsh Kendra (BGPK)" and its implementation by the dedicated team, which would build the confidence of the rural people.
