Working towards making India financially literate
Vittshala is a CCE initiative to spread the basics of financial education among financial illiterates. It was founded by a group of motivated teachers and students who wanted to make an impact through community outreach programmes. It aims at making communities equipped enough to manage financial resources and services effectively through community engagement, workshops, seminars and discussions.
Inaugurated by Late Shri Arun Jaitley, the then Hon’ble Minister of Finance, Government of India on October 17, 2016, Vittshala aims to disseminate financial literacy to the underprivileged, marginalised and remote sections of the society. Under its aegis, various projects were undertaken since its inception with target sections being illiterates, urban and semi-urban labourers, villagers, manual scavengers, women, children etc.
Vittshala expresses its deepest condolences on the sad demise of Former Minister of Finance, Minister of Defence and a proud alumnus of SRCC: Shri Arun Jaitley Ji. The nation has lost a visionary leader. A void has been created that will remain so for a long time.
Vittshala was honoured to be inaugurated by Shri Arun Jaitely Ji on October 17, 2016, at North Block. His message provided us with the direction and the drive to fulfil our purpose. He was a stalwart and a visionary leader. During his tenure as the Minister of Finance, Government of India, the biggest indirect tax reform in the history of Independent India was witnessed amongst many such accolades. He will be remembered as a courageous leader who steered the economy amidst global volatility. An orator par excellence, Jaitley Ji always captivated the audience with his impeccable grip on the subject.
In India's history, his contributions to the economy will be greatly remembered.
Our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family.
Rest in peace, Shri Arun Jaitley Ji.
