Mumbai: The Reserve Bank Of India (RBI) along with other regulators has prepared a financial literacy programme for school education boards and all states except for three have agreed to include it in their curriculums, an official said on Monday.
"If we could inculcate basic financial literacy in school education, then that would be much better to expand financial literacy in the country," Anil Kumar Sharma, Executive Director RBI said here. All the state school education boards except for three have agreed to include it in their curriculums, he said.
"We have developed content in consultation with all the regulators which is being offered for inclusion in state education boards' curriculum.
"And as and when the curriculum is going for revision, the school boards will include it. So going forward, we will have this curriculum, especially for classes 6-10," Mr Sharma said here while speaking at Sa-Dhan National Conference on Financial Inclusion 2022. All the state school education boards except for three have agreed to include the financial literacy programme of RBI in their curriculums.
