Metaverse is the convergence of physical and digital universes, where users can seamlessly traverse between them for working, education and training, health, exploring interests and socialising with others(Buhalis et al, 2023). Considering the potential of metaverse to extend the physical world using augmented and virtual reality technologies allowing users to seamlessly interact within real and simulated environments using avatars and holograms, the organisations start investing hugely in this area (Dwivedi et al. , 2022) . The studies on metaverse are on the primitive stage and largely based on generalised basis, mostly comprising of secondary research. There is a research gap of metaverse studies connecting the organisational context of emerging economies. The present issue focus to bridge this research gap.
