Coin vending machine
Governor Das said, “The Reserve Bank of India will start a pilot project on QR Code based Coin Vending Machines (QCVM) in 12 cities. These vending machines will dispense coins by debiting the customer's account using UPI instead of physical tendering of bank notes. This will ease the availability of coins. Directions will be issued to banks to promote the distribution of coins using these machines.
Popular Retail Digital Payment System
He also said that UPI has become the most popular retail digital payment system in the country. RBI will now consider allowing all travellers coming to India to use UPI for merchant payments during their stay in the country. This facility will start with passengers from G-20 countries arriving at select international airports. The RBI governor also said that the Indian economy has successfully weathered several major shocks in the last three years and has emerged stronger than before.
