Now 100 million users will get this facility of WhatsApp
WhatsApp recently announced that it will expand its payments service to 100 million (100 million) users in India. The service was earlier limited to 40 million (4 crore) users, however, the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) has now increased the limit to 100 million. While this relaxation is a relief for WhatsApp, it may hinder the growth of the service in India as it has more than 500 million (500 million) active users in the country.
