  • 3. Genesis of Sanchayan
  • 4. Genesis of Sanchayan
    • A 21 year old Meena has just got a job in a call centre in Gurgaon. She earns Rs. 8,000 per month which is directly credited to her salary account. This is Meena’s first bank account. However, she does not know how to operate it. She is yet to learn how to write a cheque or make a demand draft. This story is not just that of Meena but of a majority of the workforce in India.
    • Youth of our country are sincere, hard-working, focused and aim at becoming successful managers, doctors, lawyers, teachers, scientists, etc. There is one aspect however that can better prepare them for the future and that is “financial education”!
  • 5. Genesis of Sanchayan Sanchayan team members encouraging budding entrepreneurs save for a better future, after a workshop on savings and banking.
  • 6. Genesis of Sanchayan Sanchayan team members explaining basic banking to ‘differently-abled’ youth during a workshop at Ability Unlimited, an NGO in Delhi
  • 7. Genesis of Sanchayan
    • Yash, a 15 year old student has collected Rs. 1,000 in his piggy bank. He is quite excited as he plans to buy a new pair of shoes. Yash may not understand the significance of spending Rs.1,000 now rather than saving it, but he does know the value of money, considering that it took him more than 3 months to save this amount.
    • In life, you have to make many decisions that will affect your future. An important decision is whether or not you will take your money seriously and be financially responsible. Preparing the next generation for future challenges is a big responsibility. With countries defaulting and facing economic crisis, the complexities of managing finances are out in the open!
  • 8.
    • Sunita, a middle-income group housewife, saves an average of Rs.3,000 per month. Sunita does not have a demat account or a trading account. She realises ‘Money not invested is Money lost’ as the prices of everything keeps going up. She is keen to invest her savings. However, she does not have knowledge about the investment opportunities available in the market.
    • Sunita is not an exception but a common example of the average Indian housewife!

    FAQs
  • 38.
    • What is the need for financial inclusion and financial literacy for the Youth?
    • Indian Youth are sincere, hard-working and talented individuals who have a passion to perform and succeed. They are dedicated to becoming successful doctors, lawyers, engineers, teachers, accountants, scientists, etc, however there is one area where they can add value to themselves and that is “financial literacy.” Financial literacy will teach them the art of managing their money and improve their present and future financial well-being so that they can achieve financial independence.
    • Is financial literacy important for all individuals?
    • Financial literacy is imperative for all individuals from varied age groups and backgrounds. It should be provided to everyone so that each one of us has a better chance at managing our personal finances in the future.
    • Does financial literacy mean financial inclusion?
    • Financial inclusion is the delivery of banking and other financial services at affordable costs to vast sections of disadvantaged and low income groups. Financial literacy is the other side of the coin. It complements financial inclusion. Due to lack of financial literacy and basic education, it is very difficult for these sections to read terms and conditions and access various financial services. Financial inclusion and financial literacy should go hand in hand.
