               About 60% of Indians lack financial accessibility: NABARD


     Puducherry, Jan 23: Around 60 per cent of India's population is deprived of access to financial institutions, a top official of National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) said Wednesday.

 

     In most of the developed countries, this 'financial exclusion' was, however, less than 15 per cent, said NABARD chief general manager A Ramanathan while inaugurating a three-day international conference on 'Micro Finance: A Tool to Eradicate Poverty' at Pondicherry University here.

 

     He said that micro finance activities offered multifarious opportunities for research, career training and as an alternative credit delivery system for rural uplift.

 

     Ramanathan wanted universities and higher educational institutions to offer courses in micro finance both at the graduation and post-graduation level.

 

     Vice chancellor of Pondicherry University J A K Tareen said micro finance programmes would relieve poor villagers of their backwardness through financial accessibility. He said that women empowerment was essential for the speedy progress of the nation.

 

     With the affluent sections overshadowing the poor in a globalised and market-driven economy, there was every need to address the economic issues of the poor villagers.

 

     Chief general manager of Small Industries Development Bank of India (SIDBI) south zone, Chennai K M Nair said banks would consider the poor as entry-level customer and the Sidbi had been helping promotion of micro finance activities.

 

     SIDBI was adopting a scientific approach to augment the capacity of the borrowers through a flexible approach.

 

     Around 250 delegates from different parts of the country and also those from the UK, the US, Germany, Sudan and Bangladesh participated in the deliberations.
