Abstract

This paper attempts to measure and understand financial inclusion by looking at availability and accessibility elements of financial services. The study was carried out by constructing one Composite Financial Inclusion Index with different financial services indicators. One observes a lot of variation across states, for rural and urban regions. Even within a state, differences are clearly evident between rural and urban areas for the different indicators considered. The paper concludes to provide importance on vulnerable states in providing access to financial services on which they are lagging.
