Country’s largest public sector bank (PSB), State Bank of India (SBI) is likely to list two of the 18 regional rural banks (RRBs) it sponsors for unlocking the value embedded in the chosen financiers that have strong profits and strong growth potential, reported a leading news agency.
 
National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) is working on the proposal sent by SBI, which also plans to merge five RRBs in the Northeast and create one bank with a network across the developing region. The country’s largest PSB is planning to take Andhra Pradesh Grameena Vikas Bank (APGVB) and Saurashtra and Saurashtra Gramin Bank (SGB) to the market.
