Kolkata, Nov 6: Bandhan Bank on Monday inaugurated its branch in Kargil in Ladakh.
The private lender had marked its entry into Ladakh in August with the opening of its branch in Leh.
With the new branch in Kargil, it has further strengthened its presence in the Union Territory.
Executive Councilor Kacho Mohammed Feroz of LAHDC, Kargil, unveiled the branch in the presence of senior officials from Bandhan Bank and other local dignitaries. The Kargil branch is situated at Fatima Chowk in the Leh region.
