The Bank’s twelve branches one each in Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Lucknow, Ahmadabad, Guwahati, Indore Chandigarh, Dehradun, and Raipur are currently operational. The Bank will also open branches in all the State capitals and rural areas in a phased manner. Bank is also planning to open 16 branches in next four months

The Bank’s initial capital consists of Rs 1,000 crores. The government plans to have 25 branches of the said bank by the end of March 2014 and 500 branches by 4th year of operation (2017).

US-based FIS Global, in partnership with Wipro is leading the race for a Rs 1,000-crore contract to provide IT systems at the country’s first women-focussed bank.

Although initially reported as a bank exclusively for women, the bank will allow deposits to flow from everyone, but lending will be predominantly for women. India will be the third country in the world to have bank especially for women. Pakistan, Tanzania already have an exclusive bank for women.

The opening of this bank inspire people with entrepreneurial skills and, in conjunction with NGOs, plans to locally mobilize women to train them in vocations like toy-making or driving tractors or mobile repairs. This also focuses on the banking needs of women and promotes economic empowerment.

Student of the Year challenge – A youth festival for high school students

SOTY_CP_W1 We are happy to announce and present to you an event that Surya World is pioneering and that is scheduled for mid-September. We are talking about Student of the Year Challenge, a youth festival for high school students of the region (Chandigarh, Panchkula, Mohali, Shimla, Patiala, Ambala, Ludhiana, Jalandhar).

If you wonder why we have decided to organize this festival and how this idea have come up to us, the answer is very simple and clear. Being an educational institution and interacting with youth every day, we realize more and more that within each student lies a big potential, that most of the times even himself is not aware of it. This potential comes up step by step in the moments when the students start having a suitable environment to show as well as build the competences they have. And so, we decided that we want to create a platform for young people to showcase their talent, acquire new skills and ideas, and interact with each other in a dynamic learning environment.
