Mann Deshi Mahila Sahakari Bank founder Chetna Sinha today received the Jankidevi Bajaj award for rural women entrepreneurship.

The award, under the auspices of ladies' wing of the Indian Merchants' Chamber, was presented to Mrs Sinha by HR College of Commerce and Economics Principal Dr Indu Sahani.

The award, comprising Rs 1,50,000, a citation and a certificate, was instituted in 1993 in the memory of Padma Vibhusan Jankidevi Bajaj who was involved in the movement of rural entrepreneurship in many ways.

Mrs Sinha has successfully developed a culture of micro-entrepreneurship among women in the inaccessible and drought-prone areas of Maharashtra.

Mann Deshi Mahila Sahakari Bank Ltd was founded in 1997 under the leadership of Mrs Sinha and gained recognition and stature of being India's first rural women bank to get a license from the Reserve Bank of India to operate in the whole of Maharashtra.
