What is ONDC?

 

Open Network for Digital Commerce or ONDC is India’s alternative to the global giants like Walmart and Amazon. It is a government, non-profit initiative that will promote the use of open networks for e-commerce activities. Technically, it is a protocol that will need to be adopted by technology companies that support MSMEs.

It will curb digital monopolies and standardize the onboarding of retailers on digital e-commerce platforms.
