The esteemed panelists deliberated on how banking is no more about lending and receiving, it’s a bouquet of services and technology is all pervasive. Finance is the backbone of a country and it comes with Responsibility. So what started with one R( Regulator)  in the morning culminated to 3 Rs by evening, adding Reform and Responsibility to its fold. The absence of any one R can lead to a Financial Crisis. All the speakers echoed the idea that –

Arthanaad the sound of money should be a symphony and not cacophony” .
