PCARDBs have been assigned a vital role in agricultural development of our country. It is through the branches of these banks that various programmes of the government are being implemented in the agricultural sector. The basic task of these banks is to develop agriculture sector, which is the main occupation of the majority of people in our country and a major contributor to national income. However, the PCARDBS in Kerala are passing through its rough stage today. Many number of them are running at loss. The present study attempts to analyse the performance of these banks by specially considering the loan utilisation pattern and repayment behaviour of farmers who have availed loan from these bank. Data for the study was collected from sixty farmers who availed loan from Alathur PCARDB in Palakkad district of Kerala and was subjected to analysis using the statistical tools such as percentage analysis, indices and logistic regression analysis.
