This was followed by the big news that WhatsApp has gone live on UPI, albeit with a small base of 20 million of its 400 million users in the country. The decision comes over two years after WhatsApp had initially launched its beta UPI version in early 2018 with one million users, but was since stuck in legalities over data localisation. To discuss these developments, we have Supreme Court advocate NS Nappinai and Vivek Belgavi, partner, Fintech at PWC with us.
The global pandemic has accelerated the need for enterprises to scale their supply chain operations efficiently due to the increase in demand for online deliveries.
