To accelerate financial inclusion programme and create a digital financial economy, as well as to share insights on implementing the Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana with other countries, the government has forged a partnership with the UN Better Than Cash Alliance.

The announcement comes ahead of next month’s UN Special Summit in New York, where the prime minister will launch the adopted sustainable development goals. Digital financial services are a key tool for the implementation of the goals, and advocates hope India’s leadership inspires other governments to harness the power of digital payments as a strategy for achieving the SDGs.
