What an achievement during the last 34 years! It is really the dedication of Shri Jaya Suvarna & Team and the past and present employees of the Bank. It started its operations in a small premises in Mohan Terrace Bldg., Bora Bazar St. Mumbai, and today it has its own Central Office Bldg. and majority of the branch premises are on ownership basis. I am so proud of the Bank, because I am one of the shareholder since its inception. I think when the Bank was established it had only about 6,333 shareholders. Hope BCB will open many more branches in Karnataka.
