Financial Literacy cum Credit Counseling Centers (FLCCs)

In the model scheme issued by RBI it has been mentioned that such “FLCCs may need to be set up at all levels viz. block, district, town and city levels. SLBCs may discuss and coordinate with the banks, both in public and private sectors, and arrive at a plan for setting up of FLCCs at different levels in a phased manner. To begin with, lead banks may take the initiative for setting up of FLCCs in the district headquarters.” UBI has opened two FLCCs at Ambassa and Udaipur in the RSETI premises in Dhalai & South Tripura District. TGB has also opened FLCC in the RSETI premises at Agartala.

In the light of the above directives of RBI, given in the model scheme, the following suggestions are placed before the House for consideration and giving their views on opening of FLCCs in the State. Copies of the above RBI circular and the model scheme were provided to all banks.

FLCC centers may be opened by the concerned banks in the premises of RSETIs already set up by them so that FLCCs’ activities are dovetailed with the activities of RSETIs.

Banks in Public and Private sector, which have not opened, or not going to open RSETIs, should come forward to open FLCCs at District/Block level.

Financial Literacy & Education:

As per decision of the Reserve bank of India, Financial literacy and Education programme will continue along with Financial Inclusion in all the four districts of the State.
