Executive summary

India's economy has benefited from strong growth. However, despite the country's economic progress during the last 10 years, the penetration of financial services is still relatively low, indicating untapped potential. India's economic growth has enhanced job creation and household income, leading to a greater number of previously non-participating consumers using financial services. The central bank has undertaken a number of initiatives to increase financial inclusion and expand banking operations to these areas of the population. Changing lifestyles allied to the rise of a young and employed population; as well as increased per capita disposable income and the growing popularity of online shopping, have all supported the growth of the cards and payments industry during the review period of 2010 to 2014.

Low banking penetration levels suggest growth opportunities for banks, financial institutions and card issuers in India. As a result, banks have introduced a number of cards targeted at the unbanked population. Cash continues to be the most popular payment instrument for the majority of Indians, primarily due to a limited public awareness of other payment instruments, or little to no access to banking infrastructure, particularly in rural areas. Cash is primarily used to make small-value payments to retailers, for the payment of utility bills, taxes and transport fares. Among the rural population, cash is the dominant form of payment.

Consumer acceptance of payment cards has gradually increased during the review period, as the government and banks have begun to provide basic financial access to the unbanked population. This includes the expansion of infrastructure such as ATMs, the appointment of banking correspondents (BCs), the launch of new branches, in addition to specific efforts to change India's consumer payment habits.

In August 2014, the government of India announced the Pradhan Mantri Jan-Dhan Yojana (PMJDY) program to provide basic affordable financial services such as banking, savings and deposit accounts, remittances, credit, insurance and pensions to the unbanked population. An unbanked Indian citizen aged above 10 years can open a new bank account with a zero balance at any bank branch or through BCs, who are specially tasked with the purpose of opening accounts under the scheme.
