...the urban population in the country is growing, so is urban poverty. Therefore, a need has arisen to develop new poverty reduction tools and approaches to attack the multi-dimensional issues of urban Poverty. For this, policymakers at the national and local levels should have a good understanding of the nature of urban poverty as well as accurate data on various issues relating to it, in order to develop programme/policies to manage urban poverty in a systematic manner. URBAN MICROFINANCE IN THE CONTEXT OF URBAN POVERTY The evolution of social banking concept in India is through the development of the Self Help Group–Bank Linkage Scheme. The genesis of the scheme was an experiment piloted by the National Bank for Rural Development (NABARD) in the late 1980s to link informal groups of low income individuals in rural areas with banks The experiment was mainstreamed by the Reserve Bank of India as the SHG-Bank Linkage Scheme in 1996 when linkage banking was included as an activity of banks under priority sector lending. The institutional structure that facilitates rural financial intermediation was strengthened by the setting up of Regional Rural Banks in 1975 and the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development in 1982 with the mandate of developing the cooperative credit system. The debate on financial services to the poor and low income households in India has revolved around the rural population since the time when banks were nationalized for the first time in......

However they are lacking in sales and marketing, service operations, risk management and as a result these banks have not been able to match the......
