It was observed that non-manning is coming in the way of financial inclusion and the same needs to be addressed immediately. Similarly rolling out of DARPAN, IPPB, Mobile App, CSC etc are being affected very badly. In recent account opening drive also, this was clearly visible and contribution of BOS came down drastically.
