News has been circulating through out last year on the Indian media that WhatsApp would be coming out with a payments feature and it seemed inevitable as the country is going through a transition which is urging people to go cashless and WhatsApp would surely want to take advantage of its huge user base as India has the most number of WhatsApp users which is around 200 million.
