iii. "Indian corporates have been innovative in penetrating into the hinterland and the expectation is that the same spirit of enterprise will lead to innovation of new business models for financial inclusion," he said.
iv. Tata Sons, India's biggest business group, and firms controlled by billionaires Anil Ambani and Kumar Mangalam Birla are among the 26 companies that have applied for licences to open banks.
