Towards Financial Inclusion in India provides an in-depth analysis of the various pillars of financial inclusion such as micro-remittance, micro-savings, micro-credit, and micro-insurance. The book stresses on financial literacy and counseling, which are core to the achievement of financial inclusion. The authors dwell upon the difficulties faced by vulnerable groups like women, tribals, weavers, and rural populace while trying to access financial services. The book also analyzes inclusion measures like ICT interventions, post office model, and payment mechanisms.
Striking a balance between pragmatic policy-making and a genuine social security mechanism, the book emphasizes that financial services should be cost-effective and easily affordable to the vast majority of disadvantaged and low-income groups.
