The Government of India has embarked on a remarkable path to connect all its citizens onto a digital platform through which they can confirm their identity and consent to present relevant documentation to and financially transact with anyone else in the country, for whatever purpose, online and in real-time. We call this the Digital Money Grid, and it presents an opportunity to close the financial inclusion divide in a country that until recently held the largest number of unbanked people in the world. The Grid rides on public payment infrastructure coming from retail payments and ubiquitous mobile phones. This is linked to a broader e-Government agenda, which has the potential for bringing an unprecedented level of efficiency and transparency into the delivery of a whole range of public and social welfare services.
