New Simple USSD For Feature Phones In 15-20 Days: Niti Aayog CEO3

NEW DELHI: Amid cash crunch due to demonetisation, a more user friendly and simple version of Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) used on feature mobile phones for making cashless payments will be rolled out in next 15 days.

“NCPI is already working to make USSD (*99#) very simple, convenient, robust and to link it with UPI. So in another 15-20 days, we will have a very new version of USSD with many strong and robust easy to handle features,” NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant said on Thursday.

At present, there are about 400 million feature mobile handset users in the country. The move will push the digital transaction in a big way particularly in rural areas where penetration of smart phone and Internet is skewed.
