As the majority of the rural population is still not included in the inclusive growth, the concept of financial inclusion becomes a challenge for the Indian economy. Since 2005, many concerted measures are initiated by the Reserve Bank of India and Government of India in favor of financial inclusion but the impact of these did not yield satisfactory results. The paper aims to focus on utilizing the existing resources such as Mobile phones, Banking Technologies, India Post Office, Fair Price Shops and Business Correspondents (BCs) thereby making it more efficient and user friendly for the interest of the rural population as well as the formal sector.
