The majority of respondents (based on age) are between the ages of 18 and 25, and the preference for g-Pay for implementing online payments is at most 46.7%, while the preference for Paytm is at most 35.5%. The majority of respondents are male, and the preference for g-Pay for adopting online payments is at most 44.9%, while the preference for Paytm as an online payment method is at most 36.2%. Based on the statement "Digital payment service makes purchase of GoodsServices convenient," 43.8% of respondents gave a strong agreement rating. The total Chi Count was 8.85, and the P-Count was 0.715, which was higher than 0.05. It shows that the null hypothesis is accurate. As a result of a government initiative that had a favourable effect on the continuation of mobile payments for both consumers and businesses, the government should keep spreading the word about the economic advantages of mobile payment systems and provide concessions to businesses who accept them. Additionally, the federal government and state governments should collaborate to improve the security of the mobile payment infrastructure.
