Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the digital rupee, which was suggested in the federal budget, could be exchanged for cash and would create new opportunities in the fintech sector.

Speaking at the BJP’s ‘Atmanirbha Arthavyavastha’ (self-reliant economy) symposium, he claimed the central bank’s digital currency, or the digital rupee, will make online payments more secure and risk-free in the future, as well as enhance the digital economy.

“The RBI will control the digital rupee, which will be a digital version of our real currency. This will be a mechanism that allows the physical currency to be exchanged for digital currency “Modi made the remarks during a virtual symposium attended by BJP chief ministers and party workers from around the country.

The move away from private virtual currency, often known as cryptocurrency, is signaled by the launch of the Indian Rupee in digital format. Unlike fiat cash, private virtual currencies do not represent anyone’s obligation or liability. The Indian Rupee in circulation in digital format will show as a liability on the balance sheet of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) with sovereign backing. It will be identical to fiat cash and will be exchangeable for fiat currency on a one-to-one basis. As a result, the general public will be safeguarded from anomalous.

“The digital economy are going to be bolstered by the financial institution Digital Currency (CBDC). You will be able to exchange digital currency for cash if someone makes a payment in it “he stated

The inauguration of CBDC, according to Modi, will make digital payments and online fund transfers more secure and risk-free.

He added, “This will also make the development of worldwide digital payment systems easier.”

He claims that the digital rupee will revolutionize the fintech sector by opening up new options and reducing the strain of handling, printing, and managing monetary logistics. It’s also essential to know what a CBDC isn’t. CBDC may be a digital or virtual currency, but it differs from the private virtual currencies that have proliferated within the recent decade. Private virtual currencies are diametrically opposed to the traditional understanding of money.

They are not commodities or claims on commodities because they need no inherent worth; some claims that they’re almost like gold appear to be purely speculative. They usually do not represent any person’s debt or liabilities, at least not the most popular ones these days. ISSUER does not exist. They are not money (certainly not CURRENCY) in the traditional sense of the word.
