Pati, Sagar (2015) Study on Financial Inclusion: Perspective from Occupational Segments in Rourkela. MA thesis.



Financial inclusion is the availability of banking services at an affordable cost to disadvantaged and low-income groups. In India, the basic concept of financial inclusion is having a savings or current account with any bank. In reality, it includes loans, insurance services, and much more. The Indian banking system will have to deliver on the plan for financial inclusion, the system, which demonstrated its resilience in the face of the recent global financial crisis, should adopt strong and urgent measures to reach the unbanked segment of society and unlock their savings and investment potentials. The banking sector has also taken a lead role in promoting financial inclusion. In India, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has initiated several measures to achieve greater financial inclusion, such as facilitating “no-frills” accounts and “General Credit Cards” for low deposit and credit. Alternate financial institutions, such as micro-finance institutions and Self-Help Groups, have also been promoted in some countries. The main objective of this project is to understand the concept of financial inclusion and Role of banks for financial inclusion in India.
