We need more of India

Today, I went to Rashtrapati Bhawan for  Rupay launch. Rupay is a payment network like Visa or MasterCard.

Way back in 2001 when I was starting One97, I had a dream to build something that has impact of level of Visa. Something that’s world respected and we are proud to have built it in India.

We don’t always need some international companys’ help or their  benchmark to create a great company. Look at Big Bazaar, Look at Flipkart, Look at InMobi and look at Airtel. All these are build very much against normal expected norm of being from India.

I wish, We have equivalents or better of Naspers and Softbank created by India. RuPay for me is one such stuff.

Rupay debit cards or credit cards will be accepted across all ATMs, PoS and Online commerce with minimum cost of processing. It won’t need us to carry cards with labels of international clearances. All money, data and important information will always remain and reside in India.

We need more of such India.

One thing is pretty clear — mobile is becoming an important platform for driving the online commerce growth in India. However I believe that most people currently transacting on mobile are first experiencing it on desktop and that trend would continue for couple of more years. Mobile only shoppers would soon emerge and that would change the landscape completely. I reckon year 2016 will be a year of mobile overtaking desktop in all commerce related KPIs
