India’s success in popularising digital payments through the Unified Payments Interface (UPI) and RuPay cards has led to other countries getting interested in the indigenously built payment stack, said Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Tuesday.

“Countries today such as Singapore, Bhutan, France’s Lyra, and also many others are seeing the use for RuPay cards and entire UPI. Indistack, particularly the payment stack, has been very well recognised and people are looking to share their thoughts with India.
