The knowledge and the cognitive understanding of basic and fundamental concepts of finance, budget and investment can largely impact the financial decisions taken by an individual or a nation. Considering the great importance that Financial and Tax Literacy carries, The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) has come up with a noble initiative to educate the Indian masses about the basics of Taxation, Insurance, Banking and various important subject areas of finance through the literacy drive – VitiyaGyan Abhiyaan. Highlight of the drive is that education has been imparted in different vernacular languages using the lucid language, illustrations, and videos which I am sure will have direct connect with each section of the society.
This initiative shall enable us to create a great deal of awareness and is indeed an incredible way whereby ICAI can contribute its share towards the development of the nation. I am confident with the dedicated efforts of Financial and Tax Literacy Group we shall be able to involve many more experts and volunteers turning this into a national drive.
