 by enabling expansion in branch network and skilled manpower. Your Bank
 added 104 new brick and mortar branches during the current financial
 year. Your Bank, as a part of its customer convenience initiatives,
 continued to strengthen its alternate delivery channels by expanding
 its ATM network from 1,542, as on March 31, 2012, to 1,702 on March 31,

 ATMs, internet banking, mobile banking and others to provide customers
 with enabling options to reduce their dependence on the branch channel,
 while simultaneously offering 24x7 capabilities. From the Bank''s
 perspective, they are also cost-effective as the transaction cost is
 less compared to the branch channel. The Alternate Channels and

 augmenting fee-based income, apart from helping acquire/ deepen
 existing relationships. Share of Alternate
