Tech giant Google is slated to unveil a digital payment service in India next week that has been developed for the local market, according to industry sources.
In July, National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) had said Google had completed the testing of its UPI payment service and was awaiting Reserve Bank of India's approval to launch its service in the country.
Google today sent out invites for an event to be held on September 18 to "share details on the launch of a new product developed grounds up for India".
Google VP (Next Billion Users) CaeserSengupta will also be present at the event.
When contacted, Google responded with a gif — a cat typing really fast on an Apple laptop with a caption "Because fast is better than slow. See you Monday". PTI
