in our country where the PM’s initiative since the past couple of years has been to
promote Digital India and it has shown a lot of changes in our society within this
timeframe. These mobile payment/ E-wallet applications have successfully promoted this
cause and their upsurge in popularity is clearly evident. Various shopping sites in our
country have already added these apps in their payment gateway and now even offline
vendors and shopkeepers have started implementing these apps as their source of
transaction medium. This initiative needs to go on to ensure that our country’s mission of
Digital India is facilitated.
