Now that also means that the value of digital Rupee and paper money are the same. For instance: 1 digital Rupee is equal to Re 1 cash.

Global Acceptance

There will be no longer geographical limits with the internationalization of current and financial account transactions. Pranav Arora Said “A Digital Rupee that can be held by non-residents and is available to conduct cross-border financial transactions seems a natural extension to enable new retail payment possibilities and business ventures,” .


Pranav Arora Said “The launch of Digital Rupee in India is expected to usher in more efficiency, transparency, systemic resilience and governance in our currency management system,”

“RBI data shows that from 2018 to 2020, Indian banks lost approximately USD 50 billion to fraud. According to a CVC report, one of the main reasons for the top 100 cases of fraud is the improper end-use of lent funds.
