The formal financial institutions in India have ventured into microfinance in a massive way by adopting the SHG-Bank Linkage Program model. The present paper makes an attempt to review the performance of the program in different states of India and across three major institutions—commercial banks, cooperatives, and the regional rural banks. The study also presents vital information about the leading NGOs with major credit linkages in Indian states.
