The efficiency of 30 State Cooperative Banks (SCBs) and 20 District Central Cooperative Banks (DCCBs) in India are examined during the period 2002-06. By using direct empirical method, the performance of SCBs and DCCBs is discussed. The self-efficiency of each SCB and DCCB in each state is measured using Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA). The SCBs and DCCBs are peered into region-wise and then, the efficiency score is obtained for each SCB and DCCB within the peer group. The efficiency score among the regions is also measured. The objective of the study is not to compare the performance of SCBs and DCCBs as they are uncomparable with the present data. This study emphasizes on the performance of SCBs and DCCBs in terms of its technical efficient score. However, the scope of efficiency is limited to technical efficiency only.
