From the Desk of Chairman

Dr.P. B. Salim, IAS

We take pride in being one of the leading Minority Finance Corporations in the country having achieved remarkable growth over the last three decades and contributing significantly to the economic, social and educational development of six enlisted minorities of the Government of West Bengal. The Corporation has attained prominence as a torch bearer in the fields of educational scholarship, business loan and educational loan, career coaching etc through competence, competitiveness and timely delivery. In an era of advanced technologies and new techniques, we continuously strive to keep pace with the needs of the changing world.

Under the visionary leadership of our Honourable Chief Minister, we have formulated and executed the new state funded AIKYASHREE scholarship programme to cover all needy and meritorious applicants hitherto uncovered, right from class 1 to PhD including students pursuing technical and professional courses. Education Loan is another area where we come as succour to economically challenged students pursuing technical/ professional courses. Business loans to Small Help Groups (SHGs), small entrepreneurs and soft loans towards minority women are other hallmarks of the Corporation. Reaching to remote districts in providing quality coaching for competitive examinations is another feather to our cap. The institution has stood for quality and excellence and still striving to be the best in the years to come. As Zoey Sayward says, “Don’t wait for the perfect moment, take the moment and make it perfect!”

With this revamped website we have endeavoured to remain more transparent, effective, customer friendly and accessible. Finally, I would like to thank you for visiting our website. I hope the website has been able to profile our corporation and we hope our schemes and programs may be of your interest. We welcome your suggestions for improvements in our service at all times and assure you that due weight-age will be given to any feedback from our valued readers, students and entrepreneurs.

Chairman, WBMDFC
