Now the people of Bhutan will also be able to take advantage of the RuPay network in India. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bhutan’s Prime Minister Lotay Tshering have launched the second phase of the RuPay card today. The first phase of the RuPay Card was launched in August last year. At that time PM Modi visited Bhutan. The RuPay Card has been developed by the National Payments Rules of India (NPCI).
11,000 Rupees Transactions in Bhutan
Modi said, “I am happy to know that there have been 11,000 successful transactions in Bhutan so far.” If the corona epidemic were not there, this figure would have been even higher. Today we are starting the second phase of the RuPay Card. He said that from today onwards, the cardholders of the RuPay card will be able to use more than one lakh rupees ATMs and more than 20 lakh rupees point-of-sale terminals in India.
Bhutan’s PM Thanked Modi
Lotay Tshering thanked PM Modi and said that we are grateful to you and your government for providing the vaccine in Bhutan. Now the citizens of Bhutan will be able to take advantage of the RuPay network in India.
RuPay card Launched through Video Conferencing
The RuPay card was launched through video conferencing. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the two countries are partnering in many fields. In this, ISRO is preparing to send Bhutan’s satellite into space. On the other hand, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) is also introducing the internet in Bhutan. This will be BSNL’s third internet business outside the country.
People in Bhutan will be able to Come with a RuPay Card
Prime Minister Modi said India stands firmly with Bhutan. Any needs of the neighboring country will be given priority. The Ministry of External Affairs issued a statement saying that after the launch of the RuPay Card in the first phase, Indians going to Bhutan have become easier to use ATMs and Point of Sale (POS) terminals there. Now in its second phase, the people of Bhutan will be able to come to India through the RuPay Card.
