Financial exclusion is a result of poor relationships between banks and communities. Poor people, particularly in rural areas, are often wary of banks and finds branches intimidating. A profound lack of financial literacy also reinforces the sense of alienation. Overcoming these barriers and altering the economics of serving the poor require the bank to pursue a variety of innovations in product development, distribution, marketing and organization structure. At Federal Bank too we are harnessing the potential of digital technology to reach out to the underprivileged sections of society. Be it through Banking Correspondents (BC) or through Net/Mobile banking, we're able to bring more and more customers under the banking umbrella.
