Google is trying on its hand on the 'Digital Mobile Payment' services in India.
Digital payment ecosystem in the country has gained widespread acceptability in major Indian cities but still has a long way to go to cover the entire population - a majority of which now lacks internet connectivity. Google will launch "Tez" on 18th September. The popular messaging platform is said to be in talks with the NPCI and a few banks to facilitate financial transactions via UPI. However, launching in India first is a smart idea.
According to the Ministry of Electronics and IT (MeitY), the infrastructure of digital payments in India is estimated to grow to three-fold of its current size by the end of 2017. Android Pay has enjoyed considerable success in the USA, but has yet to branch out into other countries.
