The banking and finance sector in India has been experiencing enormous expansion in alignment with the technological advancements. Taking this growth to the next level, several new segments are coming into prominence, promising inclusive growth of the society.
Filling the gaps left by the public sector banks and large private banks in serving the underserved, Non-Banking Financial Companies (NBFCs), Small Finance Banks, Payments Banks, etc, are stepping up their game to meet new demands of customers with diverse credit offerings and transactional feasibilities.
