Major Recommendations:
1. Government of India alongwith StateGovernments and banks should strive to createmore awareness
about financial inclusion at grass root level. The details of these schemes may be included in school
and colleges curriculum. More Financial Literacy and Credit Counselling Centre may be opened and
2. To spread banking services in remote and far flung area ICT basedmobile app, etc. may be developed.
The use of these technologies can reduce transactions and other administrative cost to a great extent.
3. The coverage of Atal Pension Yojana is not satisfactory. The main reasons behind it as per feedback
received from field a). People were not aware about the scheme, b) The low amount of pension after
attaining age of 60 years. So, the more awareness camps/ programmes may be conducted to increase
the awareness level at ground level.
4. No target was given to co-operative banks under PMJDY. Now, the Cooperative Banks are fully on
CBS platform these banks may be involved in financial inclusion drive.
5. Private sector may be involved in process of financial inclusion awareness drive under corporate
social responsibility.
6. Regular capacity building programmes for Business Correspondents may be conducted. Their
remuneration and other facilities such as travel, etc should be reasonable to retain them in the
banking fold.
7. Only 8 % respondents having bank accounts were issued RuPay Card. There are lot of benefit of
having Rupay Cards so more awareness may be created at ground level and more numbers of cards
should be issued to account holders.
