Of late, the US-headquartered technology company, Google has endeared itself to Indians with its Wi-Fi project with the Indian Railways, helping millions of commuters connect to the web. And, now the company wants to do more! Yes, you heard that right. Google is planning to provide a helping hand to the Indian customers by helping them to save more and invest smartly. The Tech giant Company is working on a website and on an app called ‘Bharat Saves’ that will give Indians finance tips, financial planning and help them save money.
This website will be linked up with government’s Jan Dhan Yojana, a financial inclusion scheme launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi back in 2014. Homemakers, small business owners, newly employed, retired persons and farmers will be the target consumers of this platform.
In line with the Prime Minister’s vision to create a greater financial inclusion, plenty of leading organizations and industry associations are coming together so as to launch this digital platform.
When it comes to accessing this service, the users will need to login either of the platforms-app or website. After that, the users will need to give a financial literacy test. Once done, the users will be directed to a new page where you can see, compare and purchase various financial plans. The best part is that after clearing the test, the certificate for the same will be given by the Indian Government, Google, and an industry organization.
To sum up this thing, it would not be wrong to say that technology very rapidly is becoming a part of the financial system in the country and with initiatives like this, the financial sector of India will surely get a boost.
