Banks and financial institutions pitched for a delay in the fiscal deficit road map and for

The institutions also wanted incentives to encourage cashless transactions through

The two-hour meeting saw heads of the country's public and private sector banks - including

State Bank of India, Axis Bank, Bank of Baroda, ICICI Bank, LIC, IIFCL, IDBI Bank,

NABARD, Citi Bank and L&T Finance Holdings - discuss key measures that could be

introduced in the Budget 2016-17 to ensure economic growth revival.

Jaitley told bankers that the government would continue to focus on governance reforms in

the banking sector. He added that there was a considerable improvement in the opening of

basic savings bank deposit accounts (BSDAs) during the year 2015-16 under the Pradhan

Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana. "BSDAs reached 440 million for the period ended September 2015

as against 398 million for the year ended March 2015," he said.
