For more than a decade till 2019, we played a deep role in monitoring and catalysing reforms in the financial inclusion and digital payments domains. Over the period 2006-2011, Laveesh Bhandari and Sumita Kale worked on a series of white papers on enabling financial inclusion through digital technology to overcome India’s vast geographic and economic challenges and accelerate access of financial services for the poor. This work incorporated how policy needed to change with the fast paced changes in digital technologies to improve accessibility to financial services. The Indicus Centre for Financial Inclusion was launched in January 2011 with a view to enhance and systematize our efforts in the direction. The Centre's aim was to spur discussion and debate on different models for achieving universal financial inclusion in India, bringing stakeholders together to chart a common roadmap. After a very successful set of activities that contributed to the sustained and rapid maturing of financial inclusion and digital payments policies in India. By 2019 the key policy steps had been taken and the centre was closed down. Some of this work of the centre is shared below.
