Banking and Financial Services Industry is the fastest growing segments of the economy, faces challenges of scarcity of resources and skilled manpower. Such skilled manpower is not easily available in adequate numbers to meet the growing requirement due to normal attrition, competition and faster growth in business. The position is going to worsen further for the BFSI system as a whole, due to superannuation of many experienced bankers in the Public Sector during the current decade.

OPPORTUNITY IN BANKING

With only 30-35% of the population financially included, the Indian public is still underserved by formal banking and financial services. This will lead to issue of new banking licenses and formulation of innovation model to serve the people which are not covered by traditional banks. With the planned announcement of new licensing policy, more banks including small and payments banks have entered in to the sector due to which requirements of manpower with the requisite skill set are expected to increase many-fold.

This is a huge opportunity in the future. With growing income levels and use of technology, banking sector is expected to become 4-5 times of its current size by 2020. In 2008, about 1.1 million people were directly employed in banking and by 2022 this number is expected to double.

According to a research, India’s E-Learning market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 17.4% over the period FY2013-FY'2018, driven by multiple factors such as increasing government initiatives to promote e-learning, increasing adoption of technology, shortage of quality education, convenience and cost factors.
