Deposits under Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana (PMJDY) are growing. Rs 79,012.10 crore (US$ 12.26 billion) were deposited and 314.2 million accounts were opened in India. ^

Rising incomes are expected to enhance the need for banking services in rural areas and therefore drive the growth of the sector. The RBI has relaxed its branch licensing policy, thereby allowing banks (which meet certain financial parameters) to set-up new branches in tier-2 to tier-6 centers, without prior approval from RBI. 

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 87.62 per cent of the total card spending.*
