Business tycoon Anand Mahindra also shared the same video along with an appreciative caption. “This UPI ATM was apparently unveiled at the Global Fintech Fest 2023 in Mumbai on September 5. The speed at which India is digitising financial services and making them consumer-centric as opposed to corporate-centric (Alarm bell for credit card companies?) is simply dazzling.
