Someone please help how will UPI not help in making DBT more effective? Across multiple sources on benefits of UPI, they say that dbt will be more Effective due to upi. on the contrary. The Indian express editorial clearly mentions that UPI can in fact be hugely beneficial for Digital Wallets. https://www.google.co.in/amp/indianexpress.com/article/technology/tech-news-technology/upi-vs-mobile-wallets-heres-why-everyone-has-got-this-wrong/lite/ shouldnt the option be d.
Upvoted. I also marked D as the answer.

The long-term goal is to use the UPI as a means to financial inclusion by encouraging transactions among the newly added accounts under the Jan Dhan Yojana (PMJDY) and direct benefit transfer programs.( articles from hindustan times)

The question is asking about the "MOST Likely consequence". I had been closely associated with it during the UPI framework development period. It was built by NPCI keeping in mind the purpose of increasing the efficiency of Inter-bank money Transfer super-quickly & in the most secure way and developers had no purpose/consideration of DBT, FDI in mind. I marked the option A. I'm 99% sure. because Option B is also in my mind.
