The gwwwovernment is on the move to provide banking services in every village of the country by leveraging technology and the network of Common Services Centres (CSCs).
The withdrawal facility has already been introduced at CSCs whereas opening of accounts is being worked out with the banks and is likely to be rolled out shortly.
“Our target is to create banking access point in every village through new technology,” Communications and IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has reportedly said during a conference of women village level entrepreneurs under CSCs.
