India's Leading BFSI Companies & Awards 2017

The Banking, Financial services and Insurance (BFSI) sector is playing a critical role in driving the country's economy by providing a diverse range of financial and allied services to the largely diversified demographic spectrum of the country. Further, its importance in the socio-economic landscape is underscored by the fact that this sector will require 1.6 million skilled workforce by 2022. We are currently witnessing a very dynamic environment in this sector in terms of innovation, high competition, consolidation, and increasing use of alternative multiple channels to name a few. The government and regulators are also taking strong measures to strengthen the sector through favorable policies such as implementation of PMJDY scheme, creation of new type of banks for financial inclusion and relaxation of FDI norms in insurance sector among others. The role of fintech (financial technology) players as enablers of the financial services is also now being acknowledged on a larger scale. The BFSI sector is also among the fastest adopters of latest technology and has emerged as a trendsetter for transitioning from a ‘cash-based’ society to a 'less cash' society to a 'cashless' society. All these are strong indications of the high level of confidence displayed by the BFSI sector for a robust growth in the country's upcoming digital economy.
