The amalgamation of the Technical and the Financial sector has resulted in the new era of FinTech Sector (Financial and technical). The introduction of FinTech has made the Payment processes, lending processes, the wealth technology, regulations technology and insurance technology more efficient, advanced and error prone. This FinTech ecosystem paved a better way to implement these services. Indian FinTech Industry is the fastest growing in the world, with 67% of the more than 2100 FinTech entities in operations have been set up in the two start-up hub cities of India, Bengaluru and Mumbai. India’s 12.50% remains unbanked which encouraged the Indian government to support the inclusion and development of the FinTech Innovations.
