About Vijaya Bank

Vijaya Bank is one of the medium sized banks in India with substantial presence in most parts of the country. It's Mr. A. B. Shetty along with few other enterprising farmers from Mangalore in the state of Karnataka, who established Vijaya Bank on October 23, 1931. The goal was to promote the habit of banking, savings and entrepreneurship among the farmers in Dakshina Kannada district of the state. It became a scheduled bank of India in 1958.

The Growth
