Modi to launch new BHIM platform to push digital payments
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch BHIM-Aadhaar platform for merchants to facilitate digital payments and unveil cash back and referral bonus schemes for the BHIM app at Nagpur tomorrow.
These announcements will be made by the prime minister at a function on the occasion of 126th birth anniversary of Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar.
"BHIM-Aadhaar, the merchant interface of the BHIM App, to be launched by the prime minister will pave the way for making digital payments by using the Aadhaar platform," an official statement said today.
"This will enable every Indian citizen to pay digitally using their biometric data like their thumb imprint on a merchants' biometric enabled device which could be smartphone having a biometric reader," it added. PTI
