Traditional financial system only focuses on entry barriers removing and wish to adopt product liberalizing restriction. Recent changes adopted global financial market changes into the economy. Global financial crisis need to deal with financial policies to stable economy. This holistic approach provided prudential regulation, at institutional macroeconomic level to address wider systemic risks. Financial crisis has shown market discipline, key information gaps and encouraging more robust government and risk management systems. Risk management ignites volatile to different financial sector. When high financial integration affects economy banking system the volatility also gets affected. Glocal financial market affected bear affect to developing nations. When financial organization provided innovative product financial sector improve for better ways. Financial product heterogeneity provides some special properties to the financial market. When in any economy financial intermediary’s number reduces which give growth to competitive banking system and its result into higher growth rates.

In recent phase of competition, technology and customer relationship opt major contribution. Competition and stability are not obvious paradox.

    For any developing nation to raise won Gross Domestic Production (GDP) is a challenging task. To raise productivity financial resources becomes essential. In India, after 1991, Liberalization-privatization- Globalization (LPG) policy was introduced to remove economic obstacles and new direction towards development was initiated.

    Financial sector revolutionary movements are associated with technological up-gradation in Glocal world. Competition in financial sector is more naive as compare to other industry. In financial sector changes adoption as per customer requirement and needful implication adopted as per financial world needed. For financial sector many reasons, like network implications, Complex competition, financial growth decision and performance measurement and will be considered.

    Definition of Financial Inclusion (FI):
    Leyshon and Thrift (1995) defines, "Financial exclusion as referring to those processes that serve to prevent certain social groups and individuals from gaining access to the formal financial system."
    Sinclair (2001) explains, “Financial exclusion means the inability to access necessary financial services in an appropriate form. Exclusion can come about as a result of problems with access, conditions, prices, marketing or self-exclusion in response to negative experiences or perceptions.”
    A World Bank report states, “Financial inclusion, or broad access to financial services, is defined as an absence of price or non price barriers in the use of financial services.”
    Rangarajan Committee (2008) labels “Financial Inclusion as the process of ensuring access to financial services and timely and adequate credit where needed by vulnerable groups such as the weaker sections and low income groups at an affordable cost”
