Niyo Bharat, a new-age payroll salary solution for blue-collar employees, in association with National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), has set off on a mission to revolutionize salary management experience of this segment, which has been historically underserved by financial institutions. In line with its mission, Niyo and NPCI announced their goal of reaching 5M blue-collar employees by March 2022. The move is aimed at fostering a less-cash economy among all segments of the society.
Niyo Bharat offers a salary account for blue-collar employees, making salary management more convenient, hassle-free and safe for this segment of workers. NPCI’s Rupay is a first-of-its-kind domestic payment network with wide acceptance at ATMs, POS devices and e-commerce websites across India. Thus, the Niyo Bharat-NPCI alliance will help regional and local banks across the country offer their services to the underserved segments.
