Managers of the Bangladesh Krishi Bank (BKB) were directed to achieve 100 per cent of their targets to make every branch profitable.
They were also advised to coordinate and collaborate efficiently with the bank's lawyers concerned, who are currently dealing with the lawsuits regarding default loans pending with different courts, to recover those promptly and smoothly.
