A report from the committee, under the chairmanship of Sh. B. Sivaraman, emphasized on the need of a separate organization for looking into the issues related to rural development. National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) was established as a statutory body under the NABARD Act, 1981 passed by the parliament and came into existence on 12th July 1982 by transferring of the agricultural credit functions of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). 

NABARD supervises the Cooperative Banks and Regional Rural Banks (RRBs) to develop sound banking practices, with an aim to build an empowered and financially inclusive rural India.
