India is an immense and extremely unique market with a nascent payments industry that seems solidly poised for dramatic growth. With total payment flows approaching $9 trillion, India’s payments industry has revenues of nearly $14 billion. Effective functioning of financial system as well as effective transmission of monetary policy signals requires a safe and efficient payment and settlement system. If managed through a clear, coherent strategy, payments can be a real source of competitive advantage and consistent profitability for banks.
The rapid advancements in the field of information technology (IT) have contributed to emergence of new products as well as methods of payment and settlement. In recent years, the use of electronic payments has witnessed manifold increase, partly reflecting increased adoption of technology.
Conference will deliberate on topics like RTGS, NEFT, NECS, Cheque Truncation Systems, Clearing & Settlement Systems, Financial Inclusion, Customer Service, Financial Frauds, Cyber Security, Internet Banking, Mobile Banking & Payments, M commerce, ATMs, Card Payments etc.
