Now, in an attempt to make the banking services easy to the rural people, especially farmers in the business correspondents, the state government started banking services at Rythu Bharosa Kendras (RBKs). 

Now, RBKs have turned into mini banks. According to the Reserve Bank of India regulations, banks can set up their branches in villages that have a population of 5000. Setting up new branches requires a lot of money so, banks have appointed business correspondents and through the services are being rendered.

For the last nine months, banking services are available at RBKs. The Rythu Bharosa Kendras can provide cash transactions up to Rs. 20,000 and a bank account can also be opened.
