Mr. Setiya has contributed immensely to various areas of RBI’s engagement like payment settlement systems, banking regulation, currency management and also development banking areas of financial inclusion, financial literacy, consumer protection and their interface with financial integrity.
During the event, Mr. Setiya helped the students understand central banks, their evolution and functions. He also talked about the importance of RBI in India, its organization structure, its role and explained each of its functions in detail. This gave the students a clear picture of the working of RBI.
