RBI has joined Project Nexus to enable cross-border retail payments through UPI and FPS of several countries. Governor Shaktikanta Das has expressed hope of reduction in costs in line with World Bank’s assessment.

In support of cross-border retail payments, the country’s central bank RBI has joined Project Nexus. This will enable domestic fast payment systems (FPS) like UPI to make money payments between people across borders. From next year, the fast payment systems of the Philippines, Malaysia and Thailand will be linked to UPI, which will enable citizens of these countries to make digital transactions of money through UPI. Indonesia can also join the UPI payment system in the future.

Signing the agreement on Sunday, RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das said, “In my view, the biggest benefit of Project Nexus will be that it will make cross-border payments much faster and less expensive. It will also lead to greater international cooperation between countries to speed up cross-border digital transactions at a lower cost.”
