Bank’s passion for Rural Development

Bank of Baroda, since its inception on 20th July 1908 by the great visionary Maharaja Sayajirao
Gaekward III, has been in the forefront for social commitment with its innovative approaches
and products. A passion for agriculture and rural development and to serve the common man is
ingrained in the Bank’s philosophy.

In the past, the Bank has taken a number of initiatives such as opening of specialized outlets of
Gram Vikas Kendras (GVKs) and Multi Service Agencies (MSAs). Baroda Swarojgar Vikas
Sansthan (BSVS) is another initiative for capacity building by providing appropriate training for
skill upgradation to unemployed youth and women for their gainful employment.

Centenary Year commitments

During the Centenary Year, the Bank is committed to continue its initiatives towards Corporate
Social Responsibilities. Baroda Grameen Paramarsh Kendra (BGPK) – a centre for Knowledge
Sharing, Problem solving and Credit Counseling for the Rural Community, is one of such
initiatives.
Concept

For the rural community, especially for the farmers, there is a big “Knowledge Gap” in
financial literacy, better farming practices, technology adoption, diversification of opportunities,
market linked prices, value addition services offered by various institutions, women
empowerment and also for employment opportunities for rural youth. In addition to this, the
deficiencies/ ignorance about credit related repayment during distress situations call for credit
counseling.

With a view to assist the rural community, the Bank has conceptualised “Baroda Grameen

the confidence of the rural people.

A saga of vision and enterprise

It has been a long and eventful journey of almost a century across 26 countries. Starting in
1908 from a small building in Baroda to its new hi-rise and hi-tech Baroda Corporate Centre
in Mumbai, is a saga of vision, enterprise, financial prudence and corporate governance.

It is a story scripted in corporate wisdom and social pride. It is a story crafted in private
capital, princely patronage and state ownership. It is a story of ordinary bankers and their
extraordinary contribution in the ascent of Bank of Baroda to the formidable heights of
corporate glory. It is a story that needs to be shared with all those millions of people -
customers, stakeholders, employees & the public at large - who in ample measure, have
contributed to the making of an institution.

Our mission statement

To be a top ranking National Bank of International Standards committed to augmenting


stake holders' value through concern, care and competence.

Our Logo

Our new logo is a unique representation of a universal symbol. It comprises dual ‘B’
letterforms that hold the rays of the rising sun. We call this the Baroda Sun.

The sun is an excellent representation of what our bank stands for. It is the single most
powerful source of light and energy – its far reaching rays dispel darkness to illuminate
everything they touch. At Bank of Baroda, we seek to be the source that will help all our
stakeholders realise their goals. To our customers, we seek to be a one-stop, reliable partner
who will help them address different financial needs. To our employees, we offer rewarding
careers and to our investors and business partners, maximum return on their investment.

The single-colour, compelling vermillion palette has been carefully chosen, for its
distinctivenes as it stands for hope and energy.

We also recognize that our bank is characterised by diversity. Our network of branches
spans geographical and cultural boundaries and rural-urban divides. Our customers come
from a wide spectrum of industries and backgrounds. The Baroda Sun is a fitting face for
our brand because it is a universal symbol of dynamism and optimism – it is meaningful for
our many audiences and easily decoded by all.

Our new corporate brand identity is much more than a cosmetic change. It is a signal that
we recognize and are prepared for new business paradigms in a globalised world. At the
same time, we will always stay in touch with our heritage and enduring relationships on
which our bank is founded. By adopting a symbol as simple and powerful as the Baroda
Sun, we hope to communicate both.

It all started with a visionary Maharaja's uncanny foresight into the future of trade and
enterprising in his country. On 20th July 1908, under the Companies Act of 1897, and with a
paid up capital of Rs 10 Lacs started the legend that has now translated into a strong, trustworthy
financial body, THE BANK OF BARODA.

It has been a wisely orchestrated growth, involving corporate wisdom, social pride and the vision
of helping others grow, and growing itself in turn.

The founder, Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekwad, with his insight into the future, saw "a bank of
this nature will prove a beneficial agency for lending, transmission, and deposit of money and
will be a powerful factor in the development of art, industries and commerce of the State and
adjoining territories."
