The highlight of the global economy post 2000 has been the influence of technology. Technology solves many problems, makes it easier to offer services and reaches more people at the same time. Banking is an industry that was up for disruption. Banking is one of the most important sector of any country due to the facilities it offers to people, but it is a very difficult task for bankers to open multiple branches in a large country like India. The Central Government is focused on helping every citizen bank with a large scale use of technology. Payments banks and digital wallets plan to take all banking services to each and every corner of the country. The country badly needs skilled professionals who can understand banking operations and help it to build this banking infrastructure at the lowest cost possible.
