Government Initiatives to make Banking Popular:

Indian government is taking initiates to make banking popular among all strata of society. We know very well that under Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana (PMJDY), number of bank accounts have been opened which will demand more employees in long run to manage increasing number of accounts.

Mr Arun Jaitley, Minister of Finance, Government of India, introduced ‘The Banking Regulation (Amendment) Bill,2017’ to allow the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to guide banks for resolving their problems. He also proposed various measures to quicken India’s transition to a cashless economy. Cashless Infrastructure will not reduce number of employment rather it will demand more people to handle the situation.

Don’t forget the days when computers were introduced, same agony was there. But, we all know that we saw always increasing number of appointments by the banks. Indian banking market is not tapped fully and have scope to flourish. So, banking aspirants should not loose hope

The Ministry of Labour and Employment has successfully opened around 3,840,863 bank accounts, for workers especially in the unorganised sector (as on December 26, 2016), though it was part of promotion of cashless transfer campaign but bank got new customers. .

Indian banking industry has recently witnessed the roll out of innovative banking models like payments and small finance banks. RBI’s new measures may go a long way in helping the restructuring of the domestic banking industry. These units will also offer job opportunities.
