Indian banks are increasingly focusing on adopting integrated approach to risk management. Banks have already embraced the international banking supervision accord of Basel II, and majority of the banks already meet capital requirements of Basel III, which has a deadline of March 31, 2019.

Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has decided to set up Public Credit Registry (PCR) an extensive database of credit information which is accessible to all stakeholders. The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (Amendment) Ordinance, 2017 Bill has been passed and is expected to strengthen the banking sector.

Deposits under Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana (PMJDY) increased to Rs 864.81 billion (US$ 12.32 billion) and 329.90 million accounts were opened in India^. In May 2018, the Government of India provided Rs 6 trillion (US$ 93.1 billion) loans to 120 million beneficiaries under Mudra scheme. In May 2018, the total number of subscribers was 11 million, under Atal Pension Yojna.

Rising incomes are expected to enhance the need for banking services in rural areas and therefore drive the growth of the sector. As of September 2018, Department of Financial Services (DFS), Ministry of Finance and National Informatics Centre (NIC) launched Jan Dhan Darshak as a part of financial inclusion initiative. It is a mobile app to help people locate financial services in India.

The digital payments revolution will trigger massive changes in the way credit is disbursed in India. Debit cards have radically replaced credit cards as the preferred payment mode in India, after demonetisation. Debit cards garnered a share of 88.86 per cent of the total card spending.*
