The branch will be headed by C G Nair, Deputy General Manager. The circle office covers four districts of Kerala with 125 branches-- in districts of Ernakulam, Thrissur, Palakkad and idukki.

 

Canara Bank had committed Rs 1,170 crore to Kochi Metro project and we are considering some big proposals from government and big PPP, he said.
