ANSWER: June, 2008
NABARD, with a paid-up capital of Rs.2,000 crore, was set up as an apex development bank with the mandate of facilitating credit flow for promotion and development of agriculture, small-scale industries, cottage and village industries, handicrafts and other rural crafts. It was the Narasimhan Committee that recommended the transfer of RBI's stake in State Bank of India, Nabard and NHB to the government to differentiate the central bank's role as the owner of banks and the sector regulator.
