Financial Literacy Program for Students
Last week, the CBSE and the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) teamed up to present a financial literacy program for students in Class VI. The Financial Literacy Handbook is launched as part of a new optional subject in “Financial Literacy” that will allow students to understand basic financial concepts at an early stage of their education.
The manual covers crucial topics when it comes to financial awareness: from teamwork and basic financial concepts to banking, security and digital payment methods such as UPI, cards, wallets, etc. These are the origin of banking, the shift from coins to paper money, the types of banks and the main operations and services carried out by banks. The manual also explains the important role of the RBI and the GOI in driving the movement of digital payments.
