North East Small Finance Bank Ltd. have started operations as first Small Finance Bank of North East India after its conversion from a premier microfinance institution in North East, RGVN(NorthEast) Microfinance Limited. The organization has undergone two major transformations within a span of a decade. The transition from RGVN- CSP in the year 1995 to RGVN (NE) MFL, a premier and the largest microfinance institution of North East, in the year 2008, and now as the first Small Finance Bank of North East India in the year 2017, is indeed remarkable. RGVN(NE)MFL received the Small Finance Bank License from Reserve Bank of India on 31stMarch, 2017 mandating it to carry out banking services in remote and “unbanked” areas and registered a Public Limited Company by the name “North East Small Finance Bank Ltd’.
