National Bank For Agriculture And Rural Development

National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) is the India’s apex development financial institution, formed by an Act of Parliament in 1982. Headquartered in Mumbai, we have a pan-India presence with 31 Regional Offices and 400 District Development Managers’ offices. Our mandate is bringing rural prosperity through credit and non-credit initiatives in the fields of agriculture, cottage & village industries, handicrafts & small-scale industries. From being a pure refinance provider in 1982 to the nation’s apex development financial institution today, we touch lives of millions in rural India, directly and indirectly. This journey has seen us defining a purposeful role for ourselves in rural India and playing a larger role in nation building.
