SHG activities give, private players of lending, a run for their money. True, the sustainable lending by the SHGs to its members have significantly pushed the private players of lending in Karnataka in general and Bidar in particular. The continuous effort by the Agricultural-Co-Operatives at the rural areas both in forming SHGs and extending loans to the SHG members with the timely promotional support/guidance and financial help by the Government NABARD, DCC Banks and Commercial Banks and Rural Banks, has been the cause for private players running out of their business. The business of most players has been drastically reduced and many of them have almost closed their office shutters to half. An insight into this aspect would be of very interesting one on an academic point of view on a comparative basis as well as administration point of view in knowing the realities of SHG movement. Hence this article which aims at realizing the ground truth of lending activities both by private players and SHGs.
