Why India must stop their unregulated, untaxed run
Digitisation has made life easier for humans, reduced operational costs and improved business risk management for corporates, and facilitated financial inclusion. At the same time, the challenges and risks of digitisation are also multi-layered, especially in the financial sector where technology is rapidly transforming the operational landscape.

FinTech, or financial technology, firms used technology and innovation to out compete traditional financial services companies in delivery of services.

Large FinTechs like PayTM and Phone Pe became household names in this process by complementing the traditional financial services players through personalized service delivery.
