Participating teams can have one or up to five participants. They can use data sources like PhonePe Pulse, the Open Government Data Platform, and RBI reports on payments to build on their submission.

In addition, they can access any other open data platforms that they are aware of, along with the Setu AA Sandbox or the Setu Payments Sandbox, to develop their hacks. By the end of the event, participants will be required to present a working prototype of their hack to the judges, post which each hack will be judged based on certain parameters.

While the judges consider the hacks, they might ask for additional information on the prototypes.

The winning team will be awarded Rs 1,50,000. In second and third places, two teams will win Rs 1 lakh and Rs 75,000, respectively.

However, PhonePe mentioned that judges may decide to award fewer or more prizes depending on the hacks submitted.

The last date to register for the event is February 23 and the deadline to submit the final entries is February 25 by noon.

There will be a live AMA on February 21 at 4:00 PM to answer any questions the participants may have about the Hackathon. The winners of the Hackathon will be announced on February 28.

The NITI Aayog fintech month commenced on February 7 and the week witnessed some thought-provoking keynotes, in-depth fireside chats, and panel discussions.
