Talking to the media after conducting review meetings with the CGMs of Banks and officials of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana here on Tuesday, Arun said that the PSU banks like SBI, Union Bank of India’s performance are good in implementing Central sponsored schemes like Mudra, SandUp India and Educational loans.
