Bank-based Financial Intermediation for Financial Inclusion and Inclusive Growth

Vighneswara Swamy ()

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: Financial Inclusion for inclusive growth is a topic of contemporary significance and relevance. This study besides establishing the growth enhancing role of bank-based financial intermediation through empirical evidence has also found that access to finance by the poor is a prerequisite for poverty reduction in order to achieve inclusive growth and sustainable economic development. The study has evaluated using appropriate statistical techniques the impact of financial inclusion efforts on the inclusive growth in the case of a developing economy like India by considering the most reliable data for the period from 1975 to 2007. The theoretical and empirical analysis leads us to conclude that bank led financial inclusion has definitive advantages for inclusive growth in developing economies.
