India has become one of the leading countries of digitised payment systems making money transactions seamless for citizens. 

UPI, an instant real-time payment system developed by The National Payments Corporation Of India, allows inter-bank transactions in matters of a second. Payments apps like Paytm, PhonePe, GPay are all based on UPI transaction systems, enabling Indians swift and fast cash transactions.

Manufacturing, Education and Healthcare sectors are bombarded with programs like Digital India, Make In India, Startup India and Aayushman Bharat, creating an inclusive and digitised environment, boosting India’s economy further.

Due to The mass adoption of biometric and digital systems, India is expected to use plastic payment systems globally, resulting in one of the world’s most sophisticated financial systems.

This is strengthened by the country’s expanding technology capabilities, vibrant private sector, rich diplomatic history and entrepreneurial potential.
