The late Shri B.K. Patel, I.C.S., Ex. Municipal Commissioner, was the principal architect of this Institution which he founded in 1952. Shri Patel with his high sense of public service gathered around him a band of selfless Municipal employees and convinced them that through Co-operative effort Municipal employees could help not only themselves and others in financial difficulties, but could also educate and help them in building up credit.
Thus inspired by lofty ideals for the betterment of the economic and material well-being of the Civic employees, the Bank was launched with the modest beginning.
On the strength of the support and invaluable contribution made by Shri B.K.Patel and the kind patronage and guidance of successive Municipal Commissioners, the Bank could make considerable progress since then as shown below :-
