For the first time in 12 years, after establishment of its office in the State Capital, Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Monday organised ‘Regional Media Workshop, to impart good understanding of rational behind RBI’s policy decisions and giving journalists broader and better functioning of RBI’s policy.
Addressing media person on the occasion RBI Executive Director Surekha Marandi said that a bank account holder should not reveal details of his bank account to anybody not display it anywhere because it is main reason of hacking the account and fishing out money from the account.
“A certain level of compromise is main reason of bank account hacking and fishing out money from the account in India. Don’t rely even on your close relatives also like wife-husband, father-son-daughter these can also cause harm to your account. If someone become victim of fishing out money from his account by other sources only because of his own fault or mistake because he only knows about secrets of his account number, pin number, card numbers and others provided by the banks, even bank officials don’t know about it,” said Marandi.
Informing about the reason to organise the workshop, she said RBI organised the workshop to meet media person at regional level as it announce its policy on national level. “RBI form policies and implement it but it can be executed through media and this is the main reason to organise the media workshop in regional places like Ranchi,” she added.
Speaking on the issue of financial inclusion the Executive Director said that it is necessary to add people with formal banking system because they can easily provide benefit of government run programmes. “Before 2006 there was only 10 to 15 per cent population of India have access of banks. With a view to provide benefits of Government’s programme the government had opened a large numbers of new branches and a large numbers of people added with banks. This effort of government has resulted in holistic growth of the country,” she added.
Numerous information and basic ideas were exchanged during the question answer hour of the workshop.
