India has been making strides in designing and adopting mobile-based payment systems
The Mobile Payment Forum of India (MPFI) is a solutions-oriented think tank working across policy, business issues, and technology platforms. The MPFI was responsible for designing the interoperability and security standards for the IMPS (Immediate Payment Service) platform. Later, the UPI (Unified Payments Interface) platform was built on IMPS.
MPFI plans to come out with user-friendly features (The Economic Times, Oct 29, 2017)

The Internet is the largest man-made engineered system. It's important to have sound mathematical and engineering principles around it's performance, robustness and security.
Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)
TCP is one of the main protocols of the Internet. I work on the design, control and mathematical modelling of this protocol.
Some academic work
Rate Control Protocol (RCP)
RCP is new protocol, which uses explicit feedback from routers
