Digidhan Mission

Government of India is making efforts for promoting a less cash economy and to provide the facility of seamless digital payment to all citizens of India in a convenient manner.

Hon’ble Finance Minister in his Budget Speech of FY 2017-18, announced a target of 2,500 crore digital transaction for 2017-18 and had announced that a dedicated Mission shall be set up for this purpose.

In pursuance of this vision, “DIGIDHAN Mission” has been set under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), with an objective to achieve the target of 2500 crore digital payment transactions in financial year 2017-18 and to enable digital payment infrastructure throughout the country.


To monitor the growth of digital payments, MeitY has developed “Digidhan Dashboard”, a platform for accurate reporting, monitoring and analysis of all digital payments transactions occurring in the country and enablement of infrastructure through deployment of Physical/Mobile/BHIM Aadhaar PoS devices. It will help in tracking the growth of digital payment transactions in the country and will provide inputs for effective planning of digital payment promotional activities.

The Dashboard includes data of various modes of digital payment transactions. It provides two levels of access. General access provides details of growth of digital payment and related infrastructure. Privileged access is given to the stakeholders to review their performance for better implementation and promotion of digital payments.
