Vipul Financial inclusion needs to focus on the entire informal sector rather than individual customers according to Prabhat Labh chief executive of Grameen Foundation India the country arm of Washington-DC-based microfinance non-profit Grameen Foundation For low-income households desire to have a bank account matters less than their occupation and need for cash when deciding to participate in formal banking according to asurveydone by Institute of Rural Management Anand Gujarat between May and November 2016 in rural Uttar Pradesh and urban National Capital Region (NCR) Uttar Pradesh is home to India’slargest number of pooras well as the highest number of accounts opened under Prime Minister Jan Dhan Yojana (Prime Minister’s People’s Wealth Programme) the zero-balance accountlaunchedto attract the unbanked in August 2014 The state had 4719 million or 156 percent of total PMJDY accounts as on 27September 2017 File image of Grameen Foundation chief Prabhat Labh Grameen Foundation NCR is aplanning regionencompassing three states with the country’s capital as its centre “To strengthen the quality of bank account usage requires flipping the question of inclusion from the standpoint of low-income households ie from the demand-side perspective” according to the surveypublishedby Grameen Foundation India on 12 September 2017 “It requires taking a look at two choices that confront every low-income household when it comes to banking: why and when to open a bank account and having opened one when and how best to use it” The survey was funded by JP Morgan one of the world’s top financial services companies based in New York A development expert with over two decades experience in Asia Africa and North America Labh 44 studied statistics for his undergraduate degree and is a graduate of the Indian Institute of Forest Management Bhopal In his free time he likes to camp and play volleyball and badminton In an email interview withIndiaSpend Labh discusses the need for India to think about digital financial inclusion at the level of the ecosystem Excerpts: The survey on bank account usage by low-income households in rural Uttar Pradesh and urban NCR shows that liquidity matters more than having a bank account Does that mean such households have a great preference for cash that without a big push from the state they would not switch to a digital ecosystem The preference shown by these households is driven by their occupations livelihoods and the financial ecosystem in which they operate For a micro-entrepreneur who has to make payment to suppliers workers and vendors in cash shifting their inflows to digital channels entails inconvenience and additional cost Shift to the digital channel must happen at the ecosystem level and not merely for individuals having bank accounts The survey reveals that occupational profile is a big determinant of preference for banking than access to accounts For instance in the sample while agricultural labourers were 46 percent more likely to use a bank account than those without jobs non-agricultural casual labourers were 115 percent less likely to opt for bank accounts Workers under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) the rural jobs scheme were 75 percent more likely to use a PMJDY account Are we then putting the cart before the horse by pushing for financial inclusion before economic inclusion Financial inclusion is the pathway between accessing economic opportunities and realising its outcomes which is improved economic health of an individual/household/community and so on Both have to work in tandem and should not be seen separately A classic example of this is the data for MGNREGA beneficiaries who end up using their accounts because the ‘economic opportunity’ provided to them is nudging them to manage their finances through a formal bank account (PMJDY) therefore including them in the folds of formal financial services The financial inclusion discourse has to move from focussing on individuals only to targeting the entire informal sector including micro small and medium enterprises agriculture and allied services and all forms of services Your survey reports that women prefer bank accounts more than men On the other hand accounts opened in the name of women in your sample were more likely to be inactive How do you explain that Our report documents both existing realities as well as unmet needs and preferences which can be pointers for future design and delivery of financial services The low levels of activity in accounts held by women is a reality for women today; however their aspiration and preferences to bank through formal sources is an insight that we would hope should be put to use as market intelligence by relevant stakeholders Women are also found to be more effective as change agents to realise positive outcomes at a household level We for one are certainly using this insight to design our pilot interventions in different parts of the country Coming back to low account usage by women one has to look at this issue in more depth Only seven percent households surveyed had women as primary earning members Their participation in the workforce is low and hence their control over managing finances of their household is limited Hence even with a preference to bank with savings as a primary motive the resources to do so are not available Your survey shows there is a 28 percent likelihood of an account becoming low-usage and 80 percent likelihood of an account having no balance the farther the bank was Does that mean the business correspondent model has failed On the contrary the study actually builds a case for business correspondents The survey was designed to gauge perceptions of respondents with respect to the distance between their residences and brick-and-mortar banking structures The survey did not look at agent networks The idea was to document the psychological distance that the respondents perceive with respect to PSU/private/grameen banks We did not actually map these distances but this perception itself has a story to tell–data collected around banking experience that showed poor customer service tedious documentation and complex processes as being some of the top reasons that deter low-income segments from banking shows that access is still a major challenge not merely due to physical distances but also due to the psychological disconnect Agent networks are a powerful tool to bridge this kind of disconnect and enable greater inclusion into formal banking We believe there is an urgent need to invest in building high-quality agent network which provides service quality and customer experience similar to what one can expect in a bank branch but far more conveniently and closer to home Trust is a powerful driver of customer behaviour For a customer to use a business correspondent he/she has to trust the correspondent The parent banks must therefore invest in proper training of agents consistent and predictable process management branding and visibility in order to consistently deliver that customer experience and build trust TheGrameen Learning Platform (GLeap)that we have developed for the training of frontline workers can be a powerful and low-cost tool that can be deployed for the training of the business correspondents at scale which in turn can improve the customer experience and build trust Direct benefit transfers (DBTs) were aimed at increasing bank account usage among low-income households In your sample — dominated by low-income households with 50 percent rural households and 75 percent urban households below the poverty line for rural (Rs 972 per person per month) and urban (Rs 1407 per person per month) areas as defined by acommitteechaired by C Rangarajan former governor of Reserve Bank of India India’s central bank in 2014— 35 percent had not operated their accounts in the last three months and 21percent in the last six months What is the missing link between DBT and bank accounts DBTs act as strong incentives for low-income households to continually engage with their bank accounts One of the most popular forms of DBTs accessed is through MGNREGA As mentioned in the report greater the scale of the scheme in an area the likelihood for people to engage with formal banking increased by 32 percent Moreover workers employed under MGNREGA were 75 percent more likely to opt for a PMJDY account Having used such an account to receive payments the same workers were 39 percent more likely to opt for a savings account This is a clear shift in preferences enabled due to the role played by this DBT instrument to incentivise the use of bank accounts beyond just regular transactions In this example DBTs tied together the livelihood and transactional requirements of low-income segments to significantly affect change in behaviour Just accessing DBTs cannot ensure sustained bank account usage These accounts have to strive to become the single most important point of engagement for better financial management which means access to a wider suite of products like insurance While the gender gap in bank account usage is about the same in your rural (72 percent men 62 percent women) and urban (61 percent men 52 percent women) samples rural usage is higher for both men and women Why One of the reasons is definitely the penetration of MGNREGA in rural areas that have seen greater use of bank accounts In rural areas there are other entitlement programmes like fertiliser payments that are increasingly brought under DBT Emphasis on agricultural credit under priority sector lending for the last couple of decades also means that those involved in farming depend on bank relationships The problem in urban areas is that due to a large migrant population some of which is also seasonal migration the urban poor remain left out of a lot of entitlement and benefit programmes Problems like not having a fixed address when one lives in slums and shanties around construction sites or in encroached/unauthorised colonies could also affect one’s ability to receive entitlements and have a cascading effect on the propensity to use bank accounts This result can possibly also be explained by the fact that the data were collected around the time when some focused interventions with rural populations on bank account usages through PMJDY camps were being undertaken Owing to the novelty factor the marginal utility of the usage of bank accounts in the rural area was high Further studies and research need to be undertaken to substantiate this point (Vivekis an analyst with IndiaSpend) By: Tech Desk | New Delhi | Updated: February 22 2017 12:55 pm

Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a dig at the media during a recent interaction with senior journalists Asked whether he anticipated any trouble with China along the border during his trip to that country as had happened during Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to India Modi replied wryly that it was certainly possible since the Indian media would be there The PM was in a relaxed mood laughing and cracking jokes Asked by a scribe whether West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had had a change of heart towards his government Modi retorted “I don’t have access to her heart” Modi added that the media contrary to its claims does not really have an insight into what is happening in the government For example recent reports about a Cabinet reshuffle were completely speculative When he actually decides on a Cabinet expansion he said he was certain no one would get to know about it in advance not even any of his ministers Modi also countered the impression that the decision-making in his government was completely Modi-centric He insisted his ministers were free to take their own decisions While he felt the media was sometimes not objective the PM noted good-naturedly that TV news had limited reach In the evening most viewers watch entertainment serials Right to his views Narendra Modi was asked why former NDA minister Arun Shourie had given an interview criticising him Amit Shah and Arun Jaitley when Shourie had met the PM only recently Modi was unfazed He said he met Shourie every month and would continue to meet him and that he had a right to his views Second thoughts Samajwadi Party leader Ram Gopal Yadav shocked the RJD and JD(U) leadership when he frankly stated that the merger to form a Janata Parivar was not possible before

physical assets spread all over Uttar Pradesh It does not want to surrender this to the common pool The SP symbol of the cycle is to be the common symbol for the united Janata Parivar but in the Election Commission records the cycle is listed as a symbol reserved for regional parties only If the new party after the merger gets more than 6 per cent votes nationally it will be designated a national party and will lose the cycle symbol Akhilesh Yadav and Ram Gopal Yadav also fear that given Mulayam’s fragile health Nitish Sharad Yadav and Lalu Yadav could gobble up the new party Besides

step onto a set in Kerala and except for a handful of women it’s a totally male dominated space This unnatural skew has led to a whole host of problems On May 18 a group of 15 Malayalee women film professionals met Kerala Chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan with a petition apprising him of the formation of the Women in Cinema Collective and requesting an inquiry into gender issues of the film industry This move was met with much consternation: from poking fun at a selfie being taken with the CM to suspicion about the “bad portrayal by women” of the Malayalam film industry the reactions

24 2017 However what started as a group of women supporting a colleague became a conversation about our profession Some of us were older some younger but the questions remained the same Why are there so few women in the Malayalam film industry Why are the Vishakha Guidelines and subsequent Justice Verma committee report not applicable in our workspaces If I’m a film professional do I have no maternity health care or insurance benefits Why does my contract not ensure that I have certain basic facilities available while I’m working If I have a security issue while working on a film and not just on location who do I go to Where are wage structures which look objectively at contribution and commerce What about the (in)famous casting couch Why are there no informal spaces of interaction where women can participate with dignity Are there stories that women need to tell The history of the women’s movement shows us that it was only when impossible questions were asked that women gained rights and freedom which were unimaginable at some point in history The Women in Cinema Collective is an amalgam of women who are in the process of raising those questions Like any creative profession the threads are complex The journey is also one ofself-discovery A lot of us have taken things for granted The Collective’s discussions are broadening thoughts about equality rights women’s spaces transgenders different ways of looking content relationship with co-workers training programs and technology This questioning arises from a larger perspective of the worldwide scenario The gender bias in Hollywood is well known Women like Geena Davis have for years been vociferous critics of the gender imbalance in the media Despite all the talk of diversity the percentage of women directors in Hollywood fell by 2 per cent last year to 7 per cent in 2015 The Guardian reported earlier this year The group that’s now come together in Kerala defines itself only as a working group and intends to register the organisation very soon Membership will be opened and a democratic process of functioning will be followed The collective then hopes to set up a legal cell a counselling cell and function as a research and advocacy group We intend to work with all existing organisations and unions within the industry The meeting with the chief minister was crucial because it is only an agency like the government that can study the current status Unfortunately there is little data available on the current state of affairs The study will put forth recommendations based on current legal and gender practices Many years ago at the International Film Festival of Kerala a guest asked me if we had any women in Kerala — mostly men had come to watch his film Kerala has a paradoxical situation: development and health indices match that of any European nation but a deeply embedded patriarchal social system continues to deny women many spaces The film industry is similarly ridden by this paradox Malayalam films are considered some of the best in the country but a gender bias is ingrained Women are seen as less equal and lip service is paid to old fashioned notions of protection and care Demanding an equal space is considered overstepping the line The corollary to the lack of participation of women in the filmmaking process is content Popular depictions teach girls and boys about how culture sees them in turn: their worth their relative value and the roles they “should” play The representation of gender in cinema goes a long way in shaping imaginations and identities aspirations and ambitions Many years ago Mahatma Gandhi proved that it was the “feminisation” of the freedom struggle that made it so successful In an age when women did not step out he motivated them to participate and be equal stakeholders Women seek a film industry where gender is not a disadvantage Jokingly we say that perhaps a statutory title “no person was discriminated against on the basis of race religion caste or gender in the making of this film” could be an important step (Bina Paul is a member of Women in Cinema Collective & vice chairperson Kerala State Chalachitra Academy) For
