IDRBT Pioneers the Development of New Low-Cost Financial Network: To Bring Banking to Remote Places
The Institute for Development and Research in Banking Technology (IDRBT), a unit of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), has developed a novel technology that allows people in remote hilly and forest areas without satellite signal to access banking services.

  • IDRBT is the first in the world to build a network based on Long Range Radio (LoRa) technology.
  • It is a new dedicated low-cost financial network that banks may use privately to transmit encrypted texts and make financial transactions.

Long Range Radio (LoRa) Technology: Last Mile Connectivity  

  • LoRa technology is a wireless modulation technique in the physical layer that enables long-range communication via chirp spread spectrum.
  • It employs dedicated radios, which are not often used in end-user devices, to reduce interference from other devices.

Key Points
i.Banks can employ LoRa technology as their own dedicated private network rather than relying on a third-party network, which is currently based on either a satellite link or a cable network (fibre).

  • The LoRa financial network can enhance the last mile connectivity of the banking system.

ii.By installing three nodes, a 30-mile connectivity to guarantee bank transactions can be achieved, and it can be extended by adding more nodes at each 30-mile point.
iii.The LoRa financial network is projected to be 20% less expensive than other network technologies, and has benefits of nearly minimal maintenance and device portability.
iv.Since LoRa technology has not yet been utilized in financial networks, IDRBT also aspires to obtain a patent for LoRa-based financial networks.

  • LoRa technology is used in some countries for Internet of Things (IoT)-related applications.

About Institute for Development and Research in Banking Technology (IDRBT)

  • Director of IDRBT – Professor D. Janakiram
  • Headquartered in – Hyderabad, Telangana
