Should we ask for Free Software app for UPI?
@Dhanesh B. Sabane shared a news  about the need of platforms like UPI in our matrix group at #fsci:poddery.com in the context of foreign companies like Amazon controlling online trading platforms.
@Akshay shared this paper by Sunil Abraham on UPI and NPCI.
We could possibly ask ICFOSS or Kerala Bank (both institutions under Kerala Government which has a policy to support Free Software) to launch a Free Software application for UPI. Though we should first evaluate if the concerns around monopoly an surveillance is important enough to not bother about UPI.
