In order to improve the situation in future we Indians need to take conscious measures towards including Financial Literacy programs at schools, colleges and work places.If we want India to be a financially literate nation, we can do it only by teaching tomorrow’s adults, who are at school now and open to learn everything they are taught
As responsible adults we need to put in our bit of efforts to create a better tomorrow. A rich and prosperous nation with better health and safety framework is possible only through the creation of a financially literate generation.
