Having NPCI as its stakeholder, ONDC will have a solid foundation to start what it has set out to do. A person closely associated with the platform said its B2B business could transform the way the retail market was operated in India. “The stockist is giving the kirana store two services: one is of giving me the product, second is actually giving me the credit, which is my working capital,” he said. “So, you have to evaluate the creditworthiness and recovery. So now, the buyer can give the history of digital transactions and help me get the credit which means this buyer can go to any stockist and buy any number of items. That stockist can also sell it to anyone,” he said. The seller apps could customize the results sourced from the network once it is integrated into the network, he said.“Players can put the language filter for the nearby language, text, audio, etc, and convert that search into ONDC protocol-compliant search in the network and pick up the relevant goods from anywhere in India. It can be customized for specific needs like garment manufacturers, textile and other sectors,” he said.
