Arguing in favour of workforce standardisation in the banking and financial sectors, Reserve Bank of India Deputy Governor Viral Acharya on Friday urged the banks to come up with leadership and initiative to achieve the goal.

"Workforce standardisation is needed. But it can't be everything coming from the central bank. The banks can also take some leadership and initiatives," he said on the sidelines of 'Ninth ICC Banking Summit 2017' organised by the Indian Chamber of Commerce here.

"We have commercial lenders, we have two big mortgage lenders and a few big lenders in the MSME segment. I think they can really set the standards by evolving the data templates themselves and then they could be rolled out with the rest of the industry," Acharya added.

Describing the Indian banking system as a "fertile ground with a lot of potential", he said the data standard should be improved before pushing for data analytics in the credit industry.

"We want to push this forward as I said it is a long time measure. But we need to develop the data standards first, do the collection and aggregation and then, hopefully disseminate it," he added.
