But the boost to digital payments and the promising fintech industry — somehow lost momentum as the consumer recovered from the shock in the later years reveals an analysis of data compiled by Inc42 DataLabs.

Fintech Startups Operating In India
According to DataLabs by Inc42 estimates, Karnataka (87), Maharashtra (87) and Delhi NCR (66) have the highest concentration of funded fintech startups in India. The concentration of fintech startups seems to be skewed towards the Indian metros.
One of the possible reasons for this could be that a large amount of capital and a highly skilled workforce required by the fintech industry are easily available in tier 1 cities such as Bengaluru, Mumbai and Delhi NCR, compared to tier 2 locations.
