Hailing the efforts of the institute in inculcating the value of self-sufficiency among the beneficiaries, he said, “Unless we place highest premium on the self-employment and self-reliance, we cannot evolve into a developed society with strong financial and economic traditions. So, all our initiatives at social and economic well-being of the society must engender a positive outlook about future which originates mainly from confident and empowered sense of self”.
“The economic empowerment of people across the state is the real mission J&K Bank has taken upon itself and is on its way to accomplish,” he added.
Receiving the keys of the vehicle, Suraiya Mattoo thanked the Bank for its generous support towards the empowerment of least privileged sections of society.
“We shall optimally utilize these computers and sewing machines to train and hone the skills of the young girls who come to learn and to become financially self-reliant in future,” she added.
“We pray for the success of J&K Bank for it is not a bank but a movement of which we are proud to be part of,” she said.
