Overview of India?s BFSI Industry

The banking & financial system of the country plays a substantial role in promoting the long-term growth of the economy. The major segments of the industry are banking, insurance and mutual funds.

Based on the expected growth in the Banking and Financial Services Industry (BFSI), it is expected that about 8.4 million people would be employed in this industry. The incremental human resource requirement between 2008 and 2022 is expected to be about 4.2 million.
