Mumbai, February 2, 2024: The Interim Budget has generated positive reactions from leading fintech companies and fintech association.  

Yashoraj Tyagi, Chief Executive Officer, CASHe:

“The 2024 Union Budget consistently emphasizes the tech sector, highlighting a commitment to inclusive growth across diverse fields such as agriculture, finance, health, and communities, fostering economic empowerment throughout all sectors. The spotlight on expanding the EV ecosystem creates exciting prospects for fintech companies to innovate financing and payment solutions in this rapidly growing sector. Additionally, the government's emphasis on developing new tourist attractions has the potential to elevate tourism nationwide, possibly spurring demand for travel loans and enhancing economic growth. This not only strengthens the lending sector but also extends credit accessibility for travel to a broader audience keen on exploring emerging tourist destinations. 

Furthermore, the recent establishment of prestigious higher education institutions such as IITs, IIITs, IIMs, and AIIMS underscores a commitment to skilling and reskilling the workforce. This, combined with increasing aspirations for higher education, may lead to a surge in demand for education loans, creating fresh opportunities for the fintech industry. It is also commendable that the FM announced initiatives under PM Mudra Yojana and Start-Up India for young Indian startup founders who have been creating employment opportunities for Indian citizens in various sectors, including fintech. The budget presents a well-rounded vision for economic progress, offering fertile ground for financial innovations and growth across various sectors.”

Anand Kumar Bajaj, Founder MD CEO, PayNearby:

“The interim Union Budget presented by the Ministry of Finance is well-rounded and optimistic. It is extremely encouraging to see the underprivileged, women, youth, and farmers at the heart of Budget 2024-25, as it will lay the foundation for faster financial empowerment and a more equitable society. We wholeheartedly embrace the Lakhpati Didi initiative, aligning with the Government’s vision to create 3 crores self-reliant Lakhpati Didis. Through our association with various livelihood missions across states, we have successfully onboarded 100,000+ women as Business Correspondents, empowering them with skills to offer financial and digital services to their communities. As we eagerly anticipate Union Budget 2024, we seek specific measures, including a 5% GST rate for last-mile empowerment startups, a GST waiver on all financial services from BC outlets, Income Tax relief, and reduced import duty on essential financial services devices.”

 Ankit Ratan, Chair, Regtech Committee, Fintech Convergence Council, and Co-founder, Signzy:

"The Budget has recognized the importance of Digital Public Infrastructure as the new factor of production driving the formalization of the economy. A key factor that drives the digital economy and enhances adoption is Digital Trust. It revolves around customers' confidence in the security, reliability, and honesty of transactions carried out through banking channels. We believe a robust digital public infrastructure along with an enhanced digital trust ecosystem will promote responsible innovation while risk-proofing businesses from cybersecurity concerns. Creating an environment of trust beyond the established physical branches of a bank through real-time monitoring of biometric systems and cybersecurity resilience among others is the way forward. This promises an economy where technology empowers trust that paves the way for a brighter and more equitable future.
