Day 3 of ET India Inc Boardroom 2022 to spotlight fintech initiatives and innovations advancing financial inclusion in India

Financial inclusion, rightly seen as a key foundation for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, has received a lot of attention from governments around the world. India, in particular, has made serious attempts in this direction through initiatives such as the Jan Dhan-Aadhaar-Mobile or JAM. Other factors driving financial inclusion in India include the rise of new fintech models and innovations, supported by the robust digital infrastructure made possible by India Stack and the widespread internet penetration in the country.
