Today, banks play a very important role in the economic life of the nation. The health of economy is closely related to the soundness of the banking system. The activities of the banks lead to stronger economic growth of country. Seeking opportunity for a wide exposure in banking sector, I, NISHIT CHHABRA (09BSHYD0531) undertook training at the CREDIT DIVISION of one of the most reputed bank in the country, PUNJAB NATIONAL BANK, NEW DELHI.
