Why will the introduction of UPI and RuPay Card services in France be significant?

On June 16, 2022, the National Payments Corporation of India International signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with France's Lyra Network.

Indians are qualified to utilize UPI in nations such as Bhutan and Singapore, in addition to France.

RBI relaxes Mastercard limitations: Why had the RBI imposed limits on Mastercard?

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) relaxed the restrictions imposed on Mastercard. For failing to comply with local data storage rules, the Central Bank imposed restrictions on Mastercard in 2021.

For breaking data storage guidelines, the Reserve Bank of India stopped Mastercard from issuing any new credit or debit cards to domestic clients indefinitely in July 2021.

"The Government of India has decided that during the anticipated recruitment cycle of 2022, a one-time concession will be provided," according to the official announcement. As a result, the maximum age for the Agnipath Scheme recruiting process in 2022 has been raised to 23 years.
