Inclusive Finance is a global policy platform on Financial Inclusion set up with the objective of enabling cross-pollination of best practices and breakthroughs, specifically to support India’s Financial Inclusion strategy and campaign. In its 19th year, Inclusive Finance has provided substantial evidence, increased guidance and strong articulation for building a strong ecosystem and making key recommendations on financial inclusion policy, regulation, supervision, technology advancements, client protection and institutional framework for stakeholders. In the last three years, the Summit has broadened its ambit; more and more themes related to financial inclusion are deliberated and delved into.
