Goyal also accepted the proposal of CSC e-Governance to allow all CSCs to operate as banking correspondents and also proposed to disburse ‘Mudra Loan’ through CSCs. I announce that all 2.9 lakh CSC will be made banking correspondents. A handful of people in the banking system did wrong and defamed the whole system. Why only banking correspondent? All CSCs can be made mediums to grant Mudra loans. Goyal proposed the opening of CSC at 8,000 railway stations where they can provide all their services besides telemedicine and education. The government will provide opportunities to CSCs and they should come forward to grab all this. He too emphasized that all CSCs should focus on honesty and convince others not to make any mistake.
