Fixing the time frame, he said by the year 2020 NACHA would have established 5 to 10 functional Chapters. In the same time-period, Ganesh Kar also aims at making NACHA an International organization and extend it to other countries like UK, Europe, Singapore, Australia, Canada etc. “NACHA’s India extension will be established by Dec 2021,” Ganesh Kar announced.
