Financial Inclusion is the delivery of financial services at an affordable cost to hitherto unbanked environments, especially the low-income and under-privileged. The Government of India and Reserve bank of India have taken initiatives to spread banking services such as expanding the number of rural bank branches, allowing the banking correspondent model and adoption of CBS technology. While it is a daunting challenge in size and scope, financial inclusion is also a great social and business opportunity. An attempt has been made in this paper to study the various financial inclusion models used in India - the challenges and a way out.
