ONDC to go live in Delhi and Mumbai this month, two months after beta testing in Bangalore

ONDC will start beta testing in Delhi this month, followed by Mumbai. Testing in Bangalore has been underway for nearly two months now

Participants expected to launch in Delhi: According to MoneyControl, the following apps will participate in the Delhi testing: Buyer side apps (apps that allow consumers to browse and order products): Paytm, IDFC, Kotak, Spicemoney, CraftsVilla, and Mystore.
