KSFE at a glance

Introduction

The Kerala State Financial Enterprises Limited, popularly known as KSFE,

# Is a Miscellaneous Non-Banking Company,

# Is fully owned by the Government of Kerala.

# Is one of the most profit-making public sector undertaking of the State.

# Was created by the Government of Kerala with the objective of providing an alternative to the private chit promoters in order to bring in social control over the chit fund business, so as to save the public from the clutches of unscrupulous fly-by-night chit fund operators.
# Has been registering impressive profits every year, without fail since its inception.

A striking point is that all the funds mobilised by KSFE through its various deposit schemes and chitties are advanced wholly to the public in Kerala itself; whereas other financial institutions and banks channel their deposits collected in Kerala for advances outside the State.
