RBI Sets up Panel for Financial Inclusion
Jul 20, 2015

The Reserve Bank has set up a committee to work out a 5-year action plan to spread the reach of financial services to unbanked population. 

  • The 14-member panel, to be headed by RBI  executive director Deepak Mohanty, will review the existing policy of financial inclusion, including supportive payment system and customer protection framework taking into account the recommendations made by various committees set up earlier. 

  • The objective of the panel is to work out a medium-term or 5-year measurable action plan for financial inclusion. 

  • As per the terms of reference, the committee will suggest a monitorable medium-term action plan for financial inclusion in terms of its various components like payments, deposit, credit, social security transfers, pension and insurance. 

  • Besides, it would articulate the underlying policy and institutional framework, also covering consumer protection and financial literacy, as well as delivery mechanism of financial inclusion encompassing both households and small businesses, with particular emphasis on rural inclusion including group-based credit delivery mechanisms. 

  • The Committee is expected to submit its report in four months from the date of its first meeting.
