Subsequently, a branch was opened at Eranakulam on 1st December 1954. Later, in 1961 the area of operation of the bank was restricted to Thrissur revenue district and the bank was renamed as THRISSUR DISTRICT COOPERATIVE BANK LIMITED. This was after the reorganization of cooperative banks on the basis of revenue districts.
