HI AVS,

The Indian Government wants banking to reach even the less privileged people and to this effect has initiated what is known as "Financial Inclusion" scheme.

As per the decision of the Government, the Reserve Bank of India has asked banks to open "No Frills" SB accounts.This means, banks are opening accounts with minimum or nil balances to encourage the habit of banking among those who were hitherto not exposed to banking habits.The purpose of this scheme is to provide banking facilities to these under privileged people at an affordable cost.

The Indian Bank, which has its Head Office in Chennai, opened one such rural bank in Dharavi, the Asia's largest slum area, in Mumbai, a few years ago. You know how much amount they could collect from this slum dwellers? [B]A whopping Rs.60 crores!![/B

This shows that there is money with these poor people and if such money could be tapped, they can be used for country's economic development.Only thing is we should provide good opportunity for these under privileged people and they will utilize this opportunity and come up in life. The country will also be benefited.
