Fintech companies for people in India: Evolution and Service

Financial technology is becoming more popular as the new generation becomes more accustomed to technology. Fintech companies arrived as the drivers to cater for the service to the people of India while contributing to the rise of the economy by generating over $800 billion through payment transactions every year. Fintech through its journey focused on the convenience of customers with the help of technological advancement in financial solutions.


Companies are gaining attention for their efficient technical assistance in the banking space rather than being a replacement for traditional banking. India has now the third highest number of fintech companies at 7,460, behind US and China. This does not hinder the working of traditional banking rather it functions hand in hand with banking services to make it more effortless for people.


Services by Fintechs


India’s fintech sector grew by 20% outgrowing the growth percentile of the US, the UK and China. Over its course of growth financial technology improved the automation of investments, trading, banking services, insurance, and risk management.


Digital banking


The most common aid of technology in finance is reducing hard physical work for bank services. Customers benefit by making and executing banking choices easily with the help of smartphones and the internet. The companies provide extra facilities to consumers through cost savings from the reduced cost of manpower, papers, and real estate required for physical banking.


Digital wallets


Digital wallets arrived in the digital world in the form of virtual money savings. The wallets must be preloaded in order to be used both online and offline. Several businesses and merchants use these wallets for selling their products.


Extra applications


Fintechs are providing a helping hand in online transactions while giving access to free products such as expense management applications and managing the expense to be spent on further investments. Budgeting applications assist consumers in saving from their accounts by tracking their expenditures and managing their income.


Payment gateways


These are the platforms that enable users to pay for the products and services on the merchant’s site. Fintech companies merge various payment methods such as debit, credit cards, and digital wallets into one application for merchants’ affordability as well as for shoppers’ accessibility.


Digital Insurance


Financial technology operating in the field of insurance created an online platform for health and life insurance services. These companies offer more affordable choices to customers that can be operated from anywhere. 


Peer-to-peer lending and loans


P2P (individual to individual) and P2B (individual to business) lending has become easier with the innovative technological help given by fintech companies that creates a platform to match the borrower's requirements with the lender's profile and serve to both the users in a secure manner.


Previously in the month of June 2022 RBI barred these businesses from providing credit lines, but later in August 2022 RBI released a press that demands immediate implementation of a few key aspects in terms of loans such as,


- Fund flow must be direct between lenders and borrowers’ accounts without any third-party interference.

-   Borrowers can only have fully KYC-compliant PPI accounts and no bank accounts.

-   NBFC’s (Non-Banking Financial Company) and banks have to acquire borrowers’ all economic profiles before extending any loans through apps.

- No extension or activation of a credit card is allowed to the card issuer without the consent of the customer.
