Applications of Natural Language Processing (NLP) in the finance domain have been very popular of late. For financial NLP, (FinNLP) while various datasets exist for widely spoken languages like English and Chinese, datasets are scarce for low resource languages,particularly for Indian languages. In this paper, we address this challenges by presenting IndicFinNLP – a collection of 9 datasets consisting of three tasks relating to FinNLP for three Indian languages. These tasks are Exaggerated Numeral Detection, Sustainability Classification, and ESG Theme Determination of financial texts in Hindi, Bengali, and Telugu. Moreover, we release the datasets under CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 license for the benefit of the research community.
