About Banking financial awareness

In a straightforward manner, banking awareness, for bank employees, can be defined as the banking strategy and the knowledge about how to communicate with consumers. Whereas, for clients or customers, it entails being informed about various bank lending programs, among other things. For yet another party, that is the student's community, especially those aspiring to clear competitive exams, banking awareness is a portion of their syllabus that includes questions about the historical record of banks in India, banking institutions, banking terminology, and the banking industry's activities and role in the global financial system.

Financial Awareness

While banking awareness consists of schemes being practiced across a variety of banks, circulars issued by RBI or rules & regulations set by it, and other matters involving banking; financial awareness comprises of finance-related news, matters relating to trade & commerce, and money market

Difference between Banking & Finance

Among the plethora of services that are offered by banks, the most common ones are providing loans, accepting deposits, underwriting securities, and offering shares publically. Whereas, finance companies perform and offer a yet broader and more advanced service range such as those involving insurance, asset management, and even services that facilitate financial research, among others. Thus, finance is an umbrella term that encompasses the term banking, inter-alia.

But Banking & Finance go hand in hand!

It wouldn’t be wrong to state that the two words are indeed inseparable from each other because it is not possible to sideline banking while talking about the finance and it is most definitely not so if you reverse the sides! Even though banking awareness and financial awareness can individually be studied but the paths of both do cross each other and become one ultimately. In order to acquire banking awareness, one is bound to study the intricacies of finance too; similarly, becoming financially aware and not learning about banking is impossible too. Thus banking and finance are both integral parts of an economy and are like two wheels of a vehicle, certain to be aligned and inter-linked.
