Inclusive Finance India Report 2017 provides in-depth, well-researched and well-analysed evidence on how the financial inclusion agenda has progressed at various levels.

The report covers a review of the performance of diverse institutional initiatives working in inclusive finance—banks, specialised banks, self-help groups and microfinance institutions. It also covers the initiatives in technology that address last-mile delivery as well as provides an overview of new initiatives.

This report focuses on a larger landscape of financial inclusion while continuing to report progress on microfinance in mainstream financial inclusion activity. It tracks the growth of financial inclusion across institutional structures and delivery models, provides a better understanding of the complexities of the sector, and contributes to the policy development process on inclusive finance. It informs banks and investors—both national and international, brings forth key issues that require the attention of the financial sector as well as of policy makers, highlights the positive impact of the sector, and identifies policy and practice gaps on an annual basis. The report involves participation by the RBI, Ministry of Finance, banks, apex financial institutions, technology service providers, business correspondents and diverse delivery models. It serves the dual purpose of informing the policy formulation process as well as providing perspective on the practice of financial inclusion in India.

This is the best reference book on the annual trends and progress of the financial inclusion and microfinance sector. It includes data-based analysis of all streams of financial inclusion, with most current information in terms of numbers and developments. It is a must-read for every practitioner in the financial inclusion value chain.
