Lalgola: Finance minister Pranab Mukherjee, on Monday, said that banking facilities would be extended to 73,000 villages by 31 March next year.
The banking facilities, including mobile banking, would reach areas with a population of 2,000, Mukherjee said at the inauguration of a branch of the Oriental Bank of Commerce here.
For this, banks should come forward since Rs 1,85,000 crore had been provided for rural development in the union budget, he said.
