What is the Full form of UPI?

The full name of UPI is Unified Payments Interface. UPI’s instant real-time payment system helps to transfer cash instantly through mobile interface between two bank accounts. Thus, UPI is a concept that allows different bank accounts to be linked to a single mobile app. National Payments Corporation of India established this idea under the supervision of RBI and IBA (Indian Banks Association).

A few UPI characteristics are listed below:

  • Good for merchant payments, in-app transactions, payments for electricity bills, OTC payments, and payments based on barcodes.

Working process of UPI

  • The users would need to create a VPA (Virtual Payment Address) of their choice to use the UPI service.
  • The user also needs to connect their bank account to the VPA.
  • The VPA then becomes the customer’s financial address, and they do not need to recall information such as IFSC code, beneficiary account number or net banking password & user ID to send or receive money.
  • The customer’s virtual address for Pull and Push aims to strengthen extra protection.
  • The customer does not need to punch over again in this information, and there is no credentials sharing.

Advantages of UPI

  • It provides a secure, stable, quick and straightforward way to transfer money, make bill payments, make shopping payments and much more.
  • It helps users quickly transfer money from their bank account directly into an individual’s bank account.
  • The UPI transactions do not demand the full bank details of the users as well as other confidential information once the users initiate a payment.
