India will witness a phenomenal increase in digital payments over the next few years. As per industry estimates, the digital payments industry in India will grow by 10 times to touch $500 billion by 2020 and contribute 15% of gross domestic product (GDP). Majority of existing digital payment users already prefer this medium to other cash payment methods, say industry surveys.
