According to the latest Global Findex Database released by the World Bank on the sidelines of the annual Spring meeting of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, 11% of the world's unbanked adults are in India.
According to the report, the gender gap in the use of digital payments varies substantially among developing economies.
The World Bank said a strong government push to increase account ownership through the Aadhaar move has helped narrow both the gender gap and the gap between richer and poorer adults.
