Little Ragini is too young to learn about currencies of different countries and meaning of words like savings and current account. But what aroused her interest in banking and commerce are the comic books describing all such economic terms in the language of kids.
The stall of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) at the ongoing India International Trade Fair (IITF) is disseminating awareness about finance and economics among the visitors in the language they understand.
"We have come up with these comics book series and cartoon books to make kids learn about the banking systems and to prepare their minds for a vibrant future economy, which will depend on their shoulders," said a senior RBI official at the stall.
The RBI's objective for participating in the fair is to establish direct contact with the common man and learn from their queries and comments.
"This stall is very informative for all of us, especially the middle class, as we get to know a lot about our financial system," said Rajesh Sachdeva, Ragini's father. A quiz on financial literacy is also being organised, besides the screening of films on security features of currency notes and banking schemes.
