The latest PPI guidelines of RBI reinforce the roadmap for wallet operators and partnerships with Banks, and our association is a significant step in the same direction. Going forward, under this partnership, these common customers will also get the benefit of UPI for purchases at MobiKwik merchants and p2p transfers.”
