They offer an exciting opportunity to establish new operational models and based on insights from Data analytics, it can provide scope to identify gaps in current financial sector offerings; uncovering opportunities and advantages that can be seamlessly helpful to address the problem of rising NPAs in Indian Banking Sector.
