In sync with the “Digital India” initiative Indian banking sector is also getting digitised, how is your organisation contributing to this initiative?
We totally support the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. At CashSuvidha we have an internal mission of ‘Digital lending in Digital India’. We are completely aligned with the ambition of the Indian economy to become a cashless digital economy and emerge as a strong Fintech ecosystem via both funding and promotional initiatives. Our team is working tirelessly towards penetration of the digitally enabled financial platforms across all the urban and rural segments of India.
Regularly, we are approached by a large number of borrowers for their immediate funds requirements, who are starved of institutional credit. Through digital lending we strive to be of respite for anyone and everyone who comes to us. At the moment, we are leveraging technology for authentication and credit assessment by increasingly turning our lending platform into an online automated scoring and lending portal. We also keep a track of an individual’s past digital activity including social media footprints and use them for credit assessments thus opening up the potential of inclusive digital lending.
