Google BHIM App Tops Download Charts on Google Play India

Within 48 hours of being launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the app named BHIM was India’s most-popular, registering the maximum downloads of any free Android app in India. BHIM - which stands for Bharat Interface for Money - is named after Dr BR Ambedkar, the PM said on Friday when he announced the new app as the latest big step in moving the country away from cash transactions.
