Addressing the newly inducted senior officials, managers and information technology officers in the Punjab State Cooperative Banks in Chandigarh, Badal said that the cooperative banks play a leading role in providing banking services to the people residing in the rural areas of the state, due to which state government had laid special emphasis on strengthening and modernizing these banks.
    
The Punjab Chief Minister said that these officers would not only play a pivotal role in improving the functioning of the Cooperative banks but would also help in improving the economic lot of the farmers besides playing a key role in rural development.
    
He said that though the state government had already taken path breaking initiatives for upgrading the infrastructure in these banks but the shortage of requisite human resource in them was a major obstacle in delivering quality services to the customers.
    
However, Badal said that with the recruitment of these 90 professional officers, the entire functioning of these banks would witness sea change in deliverance of customer centric services to the people.
    
Exhorting the newly appointed officers to discharge their duties with utmost dedication and commitment, the Chief Minister said that there is no short cut to success as a person could excel in his career only through sheer hard work and devotion.
    
He expressed hope that through their hard work and sincerity, these young officers would infuse a new spirit in the working of the cooperative banks thereby carving a niche for themselves in this field as a real professional.
     
He directed the officers of the Cooperative Department to fulfill the remaining vacant posts in the department so that far better services could be delivered to the customers.
