SEDB has nine branches in other parts of the NorthEast province.

SEDB is focussing its efforts on deprived villages to promote increasing use of the banking system for maintain savings and to take advantage of the banks' generous loan terms to improve their lives.

SEDB is providing loan facilities on rotation basis to villagers who are engaged in trade, agriculture, animal husbandry, fisheries industry, small-scale industries and housing, education, health and medical services.

In addition the SEDB has been implementing a special saving scheme to instil in the minds of students, farmers and women the habit of saving, sources said.
