Linking businesses with account aggregator will create millions of jobs: Nilekani

Linking businesses with account aggregator (AA) network — a financial data sharing platform — will help small entrepreneurs get easy access to credit and create millions of , Infosys Technologies co-founder and chairman Nandan Nilekani said on Tuesday.

He made the remarks during a session at the ‘GSV + Emeritus Summit' event in Gurugram.

In the Budget for FY24, the government said that the GST system could join the account aggregator network, which means that every company in the GST system can ask for its data back which includes their tax filings and invoices, Nilekani said.

“This data will be authentic. India has about 11-12 million businesses registered in the GST system.

“They can give the data to a lender for loan etc… what all this will do, it will essentially reduce friction to credit for small businesses and if millions of small businesses get access to credit then that gives them the capital to build their companies then they will create jobs,” he said.

Each of the businesses would create 1-2 jobs which will lead to 20-30 million job opportunities in the country, Nilekani said.

An account aggregator (AA) network is a RBI-regulated entity (with an NBFC-AA licence) that helps an individual securely and digitally access and share information from one financial institution they have an account with to any other regulated financial institution in the AA network.

He further said that skilling is one area which needs attention as the person with better skill is going to get the jobs created in future.

Ashwin Damera, co-founder and CEO of Emeritus, one of the organisers of the event, said that can play a vital role in taking to the masses.
