Catering to the diverse financial needs of the country, Non-banking financial companies play an important role in promoting inclusive growth. NBFCs like Bajaj Finserv Limited often take the lead role in providing innovative financial services to Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs), a sector neglected by banks. Even though MSMEs account for 45% of the total manufacturing output and 40% of the exports in the country, they find it difficult to access formal credit. However, business loans and small business loans can be availed on Bajaj Markets which is a corporate agent for Bajaj Finserv Limited, within a day. Even start-ups can get custom-made business loans on Bajaj Markets, a sector with limited credit options. Besides providing credit to businesses, NBFCs play a critical role by participating and providing a fillip to transportation, employment generation, and wealth creation. They also provide credit to rural segments and the financially weaker sections of the society.

For instance, Bajaj Markets offers customers, in-depth information pertaining to financial health, reasons to get insurance and investing for the future through mutual funds. It is one of the leading digital financial intermediaries engaged in the business of loans, investments, payments and insurance, and also plays an important role in channelizing the scarce financial resources for capital formation. FBajaj Markets help in meeting the increasing financial needs of the people in need of business loans, other loans, insurance, investment or payment, delivering the best in class customer experience. It is important to note that they do not include services related to agriculture activity, industrial activity, sale, purchase or construction of immovable property. In India, despite being different from banks, NBFCs are bound by the Indian banking industry rules and regulations.

However, compared to NBFCs, you may see that the banking sector would always be the most important sector in the field of business because of its credibility in supporting critical pillars of manufacturing, infrastructural development and being the backbone of the common man’s hard-earned money.
