Insufficient participation by the India's population in the financial sector has long been a matter of concern for generations of Indian policymakers. In the past several approaches to rectify this have been tried including the nationalisation of some major commercial banks. Recently, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Jana Dhana Yojana and other policy initiatives have taken a bold step in the direction of ensuring greater financial inclusion.
In the 2016 K R Narayanan Oration, The Hon Mr Arun Jaitley, MP, Indian Minister for Finance, Corporate Affairs and Information and Broadcasting, will review the potential of these policy measures to stimulate financial inclusion and, hence, reduce poverty and create job opportunities through people's enhanced participation.
Light refreshments from 5pm in the foyer with the speaker.
The K R Narayanan Oration Series is presented by the Australia South Asia Research Centre (ASARC), Arndt-Corden Department of Economics, Crawford School of Public Policy.
