Members Testimonials for BCFI

CIGS, one of the earliest members of BC Network Managers’ Forum, has been happy to be part of the founding members of BCFI. BCFI, over the years, has played a pivotal role in bringing together the Business Correspondent Organizations and thereby, providing a forum for the industry to represent their genuine common challenges to the authorities concerned in a coherent manner; BCFI taking up the cause of the BC industry has lent greater credence and its liaison with the Regulators and authorities have been of invaluable value to not only the Members of BCFI, but also for the Banks, Regulators and Government Agencies as well. Kudos to BCFI. As it transforms into a Self-Regulatory Organization, BCFI would play a crucial role in sustaining the growth of the industry in a healthy and viable manner.
