great suggestion on biting on the small issues. Quick question
for you (and the rest of the community): do you guys mark beginner
issues in your JIRA? A lot of projects do use a certain label
(like... "beginner" ;-)) which make it super easy for the new comers
to look at the list of what they can tackle.

You can find the technical specification of UPI on NPCI website[1].

(National Financial Switch) etc. In other words, they will be able to acquire customers, provide
payment (credit/debit) services to individuals or entities, in India.

Do we have such a list?
