Suggestions (cont’d)      All concessional rates of interest should be removed Banks should go for new sources of funds such as Certificates of Deposits Branch expansion should be carried out strictly on commercial principles Diversification of banking activities Almost all suggestions of the Narasimham Committee have been accepted and implemented in a phased manner since the onset of Reforms .
