Supplementary notes

* The Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana (PMJDY) is financial inclusion program of Government of India which is applicable citizens between 18 and 65 years old. It aims to expand and make affordable access to financial services such as bank accounts, remittances, credit, insurance and pensions.
Launched in August 2014, the scheme has been criticized by the opposition as an effort to please voters that has created unnecessary work-burden on the public-sector banks. It has been claimed that the poor deserve food more than bank accounts and financial security.
