We continue to work with our partners to review the evolving macro environment and accordingly slight moderation may be expected in our growth. That said, we continue to see ample growth and upsell opportunities in this business and are focusing on the quality of the book.

Consistent growth in total merchant payments volume: The total merchant GMV processed through our platform for the two months ended August 2022 aggregated to Rs 2.10 Lakh Cr ($26 billion), marking a y-o-y growth of 72%.

New milestone in offline payments leadership: We continue to strengthen our leadership in offline payments, with deployment of 4.5 million devices at merchant stores across the country.
