The government’s enthusiastic promotion of cashless technologies – digital wallets, Internet banking, the mobile-driven point of sale (POS) and others – as well as the launch of initiatives including Aadhaar, eKYC, UPI have also facilitated to restructure the financial sector, disrupting the long-held monopoly of traditional institutions like banks.
Furthermore, in recent years, access to the banking system has also improved significantly, thanks largely to the government’s efforts to integrate technologies into the other conservative sector as well as facilitate expansion in unbanked and non-metro regions across the country. BANKIT intends to further extend the reach of banking facilities to all these unbanked and underbanked people across India.
