In a significant announcement on September 5th, Financial Services Secretary Vivek Joshi shared promising insights into India’s financial landscape, predicting substantial growth in the credit market, especially within the digital lending segment.

According to Mr Joshi, the credit market, buoyed by the digital lending sector, is well on track to reach a staggering $350 billion, equivalent to approximately ₹3 lakh crore, by the end of this year.
