An interactive session to discuss the merits of the 'Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojna' was held in VI-LT2 by the Economics Club.
The event started with a short summary to familiarise the attendees with the scheme, which included an introduction to the main points of this financial inclusion program. Aimed at improving the lives of millions of India's poor by bringing them into the financial mainstream and freeing them from the clutches of usurious moneylenders, the discussion brought into focus its needs, benefits and drawbacks. It allowed the attendees to actively participate by asking questions and clarifications and often chipping in with points of their own. The session concluded with some final remarks from the moderator and the assurance of another session to help the audience be aware and knowledgeably discuss more such issues.
