Each year, the Campaign makes a concerted effort to include institutions that have previously not submitted Institutional Action Plans. In 2001, 57.8 percent of the growth in poorest clients reached came from institutions reporting for the first time covering data from December 31, 2000. A significant portion of the growth that year came from India’s National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD), which had expanded dramatically over the previous four years. NABARD is the apex development bank in India developing Self-Help Groups (SHGs), many of which are linked to formal banking institutions.
Forty-nine institutions reporting to the Campaign for the first time in 2012 accounted for 289,632 of the 124.3 million total poorest clients. However, this was a miniscule increase compared to the decrease of 13.3 million total poorest clients. Therefore, the growth resulting from institutions reporting for the first time is negative (table 3).

(December 31, 2000, to December 31, 2011)
The growth from 7.6 million poorest at the end of 1997 to 124.3 million poorest at the end of 2011 represents a growth of 1,535% during this fourteen-year period (Table 4).
