Being financially educated is an important asset to sustain effectively in society. However, growing up, the education sector was almost negligent to this important field of education. And we felt quite the repercussions of the same.
But the Manipur government has decided to collaborate with RBI Imphal to change it all for the good. According to a Reserve India official’s statement, textbooks regarding financial education will soon be introduced as a part of the schools’ curriculum for the 2021-22 academic session. To be introduced to class 6 to 10, these textbooks will deal with important financial concepts to help the students become aware of risks, opportunities and choices in the financial sector.
This initiative was announced by RBI Imphal’s General Manager Mary L Gwite at the Financial Literacy Week 2021.
