Namaste Pay is a growing mobile payment gateway. It’s owned by NDPC. It’s noteworthy that the company is the largest in terms of paid-up capital. However, in the cut-throat competitive environment of digital wallets, it has struggled to hit a benchmark. But the ambitious company boasts some delightful features making it a worthy choice for mobile payment. It features split bill, offline, payment, and other standard payment services.

Being a joint venture of RBB and Ntc, NDPC has ample resources to research and develop Namaste Pay into a top digital wallet in the country, something that Mr. Upadhyaya will focus on in his tenure.
