Mukharjee assured them that he would consider their suggestions to improve the credit-deposit ratio and widen the reach of the banking system in the states.
Official sources said the chief minister of Assam, Bihar, Meghalya and Nagaland and the finance minister of West Bengal attended the meeting, besides representatives of Orissa, Jharkhand, etc.
Mukharjee will also hold a meeting with the top officials of public sector banks and heads of financial institutions like the NABARD, SIDBI and the Exim Bank on the flow of credit to the agriculture sector and loan to weaker section of society.
