Thiruvananthapuram, Nov 12: Kerala became the first state in the country to achieve full coverage of bank accounts for all families as part of the Jan Dhan Yojana launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Independence Day this year, a report in Deccan Chronicle said.

The feat was announced by state Finance Minister KM Mani at the Bankers Committee meeting here on Tuesday, the report added.
