This study estimated the degree of influence of different demographic factors on financial inclusion based on the data collected from 640 respondents from the rural households of Tamil Nadu during the year 2018. Binomial logistic regression was employed to identify the demographic characteristics which influencing financial inclusion among the respondents. The results revealed that the respondents who were either employed or self-employed showed a greater probability of being financially included than housewives, retired persons, students, and those who were unemployed. Besides, having a gas connection in the household, the frequency of bus to town and financial literacy had a positive influence on being financially included, whereas, the factors such as the distance of the village from the banks, and respondents being unemployed showed a negative influence on the financial inclusion of the respondents.
