"As a merchant partner for Tez for business programme, all Xiaomi customers can now seamlessly and securely pay with any bank account stored in their Tez account on their phone," Sujith Narayanan, Head of Partnerships and Business Development, Tez, said in a statement. Users can pay directly from their bank accounts online for any purchase that they make, further cementing Xiaomi's commitment to contribute to the "Digital India" initiative.

"Our vision is to bring innovation to everyone and our integration with Tez is another step forward in this direction.
