The session titled, “Non Banking Financial Company: An Opportunity in a Storm” began with the opening speech by Dr Amitabh Rajan, Chairman, Reserve Bank of India Services Board, who highlighted the ongoing challenges faced by the Non-Banking Financial Companies (NBFCs) in India, role of media during the tough times and the way forward.

India is different and so are the challenges faced by the NBFCs here. In the tough times, there is a need to speculate and think beyond, said Ranjan, while addressing the inaugural session.

“We have to find out our own way in India to deal with the challenges in the NBFC sector rather than getting panicked by the Newspapers which generally highlight scams and draw conclusions based on the west,” said Rajan.
