As per the 2011 census, only 14.5 crore out of the total 24.5 crore households in the country use banking services. As per the recent news articles, the Indian Government is all set to launch Sampoorn Vittiyea Samaveshan (SVS), an ambitious new financial inclusion plan that would seek to bring banking services to the 10 crore uncovered households. This financial inclusion plan is to be undertaken on a mission mode basis and involve spend of Rs 1,700 crore in a span of one year to accomplish the set targets.
It would also involve appointment of 60,000 new bank mitras (business correspondents). Now, how can technology solutions help these mitras achieve Financial Inclusion by tapping under-served markets?
Here are some tips to help mitras achieve the goal:
- Automate customer onboarding – reduce sales cycles through real time data exchange between field agents & back-end business managers
- Simplify document collection – reduce manual document collection and processing with a high-resolution mobile scanner
- Eliminate fraud – solve identity theft by using innovative technologies like Voice Biometrics (VB). VB can help authenticate customers within 15 seconds in 100% secure & hassle free way
