The biggest mental block for women to be part of financial services is (that) they think it is a male dominated area. They think it is too complicated, it's like a web maze and they will not be able to make it through it. So, I think what we require, what is the need of the hour, is, I would say, pro-women policies. There is a lot of lip service, which most of the industry people rarely talk about, but how many people actually walk the talk is very, very critical.
