  21. 21. Private sector should be involved in process of financial inclusion and they should be made realise that it is not only a business opportunity for them but corporate social responsibility too  creation of awareness among farmers about various insurance products, bringing all crops in all areas under insurance cover, low premium rates, simplified procedure for settlement of claims, village to be made as the base unit for assessment of crop damage, providing cover to farmers for all types of risks including weather insurance is very essential 
  22. 22. The Financial Institutions may open up separate setup through personnel professionally qualified preferably under Social welfare or similar academic areas. This set up may provide counselling in other areas too like education ,health, sanitation, civic rights etc. which can enable small and other vulnerable segments of farming community look for, beyond financial inclusion, inclusive growth.  Strengthen agency banking (micro finance institutions, business facilitators and business correspondents). Our very old post offices will be an ideal channel to pursue the future long term goals of agency banking especially in rural India. A Post Office Card Account may be created for those who are not able or unwilling to access a basic bank account 
  23. 23.  Increase coverage under mobile banking and satellite banking and develop new platforms. Recent developments from private players like Nokia, which has introduced Nokia Life Tools for agriculture, should be targeted as potential partners in achieving such goals.
  24. 24. CONCLUSION Financial inclusion especially among farmers is not a onetime effort; it is an on-going process. It requires a major mind-set change in the minds of every individual involved – banker, bureaucrat, regulators etc., As observed by Dr. Yunus, “…….basic ingredient of overcoming poverty is packed inside each poor person. All we need to do is to help this person to unleash this energy and creativity.... Only place in the world where poverty will exist will be in the museums and no longer in human society.”
