New Delhi [India], Mar 20 (ANI-NewsVoir): Digital wallets are set to be inter operable as Reserve Bank of India (RBI) prepares to open up the Unified Payments Interface platform as a part of government's digitization program. RBI is expected to issue guidelines shortly on interoperability and 'Know Your Customer' (KYC) norms for digital wallet companies. Interoperability will allow direct money transfers to other digital wallet providers without having to go through a traditional bank.
