India has framed itself into a digital economy where FinTech start-ups are leading the digital transformation of the financial industry. Today, Indians have become more welcoming towards the use of digital payments modes, which has led to the rise of more FinTech platforms in India.
Amid the ongoing situation, the importance of going cashless has risen. Mobile wallet transactions have been surpassing credit card usage and will slowly begin to replace the traditional payment methods. The Digital India initiative has played an active role in transforming payment.
