RBI governor D Subbarao on Thursday declared Ernakulam as the first district in the country to achieve total and meaningful financial inclusion.

“Ernakulam was the first district in the country to achieve 100% family planning in 1970s. In 1990, Ernakulam was declared the first district to have 100% literacy. Today is the third step in the process… Ernakulam is becoming the first district in the country to achieve 100% financially inclusion,” Subbarao announced at a function attended by chief minister Oommen Chandy, finance minister K M Mani and Nandan Nilekani, chairman of Unique Identification Authority of India.
