Mahindra bought fruits by paying e-rupee
At the Reserve Bank’s board meeting today I learned about the @RBI digital currency-the e-rupee. Right after the meeting I visited Bachche Lal Sahani, a nearby fruit vendor who is one of the first merchants to accept it. #DigitalIndia inaction!

How to use digital currency
RBI has issued 2 types of digital currency. One CBDC-W and the other CBDC-R have been used. The first will be used for wholesale payments and the second CBDC will be used for retail payments.
