More user-friendly digital payment modes needed, panel tells Govt

A group of top secretaries formed by the Centre post demonetisation has advised the government to roll out more user-friendly modes of digital payment and is in touch with all district collectors and chief secretaries to take stock of the situation. 

“The group is regularly interacting with district collectors and the government machinery at the local level to review the situation especially in rural areas,” a source said.

There is a need for a new user-friendly version of USSD Unstructured Supplementary Service Data that can be used for banking via low-end feature phones and similarly for UFI, a national cashless payment platform, it said.The feedback received from rural areas has been passed on to the authority concerned and more user friendly-versions of digital payments are in the pipeline, it said.
