Friends, UPI has a full form Unified Payment System (Unified Payment Interface) It is an instant payment system launched by NPCI i.e. National Payment Corporation of India. NPCI is an organization that also manages UPI and through it Also manages transections happening.

Unified Payment Interface i.e. UPI is not designed for any single app and neither is it an app itself, different banks can use this interface for their different apps. This app provides a common interface to everyone. If you are directly speaking, if you are paying from a UPI based app, then you can directly transfer money from your bank account to another bank account. Apps may vary but UPI provides the same interface to everyone.

UPI is such an interface using which we can transfer funds from one bank to another bank immediately from our mobile. This system is not like a wallet at all. In a wallet, you can keep a little money from your bank account. You can also make a payment or transfer, but you can keep a small amount in it and the money that remains in it does not remain in our bank account, they only remain in the wallet. Whereas whatever payment you make through the UPI based app, the deduction is deducted directly from your bank account and the total amount shown to you is your bank balance.

UPI is a real time payment interface, that is, payment is received in the bank account immediately after the completion of the transection. Much like ATM works, but to withdraw money from ATM, you also have to go to ATM, but with this you can pay at home, for this you do not need to go anywhere. All you have to do is to enter your credit or debit card details in the UPI app sitting at home and after a little process you can send money directly to a bank account anywhere.

How to use UPI?

Before using UPI, you must first know whether your bank account supports UPI or not, which you can see in the list below or if you want you can also check it by visiting NPCI website . If your bank account supports UPI, firstly you can search any app related to UPI on the play store or you can also download it by visiting your bank’s website.

After downloading the app, you will have to set up your account in it, for this you first have to know whether your mobile number is linked to your bank account or not, or else you cannot use the UPI app right now, but if you have Install your book SIM card in your mobile whose number is linked to your bank account.

Now you have to open the UPI app installed in your mobile and only after opening it will ask you to select your SIM card whose number is linked to your bank account, after selecting the number, an OTP will come on your mobile which or So the app itself will detect and move forward or you have to manually insert it into the app.

Now you will be asked to setup a four digit UPI PIN. After setting it up, you will now see a list of many banks (if your app is not for a particular bank).
You have to select your bank from these and next. After this your account will be set up.

How does UPI work?

As I mentioned earlier that UPI is a real time payment interface as it uses IMPS i.e. Immidiate Payment Service which helps in making it a real time service. As you know UPI is an interface and interface means some pre-made rules and methods ie any app that is based on UPI has to implement all those methods and rules inside itself.

All the banks in India are connected to each other through Reserve Bank and every customer is given a unique virtual address irrespective of whether the customer is connected to any bank and similarly every customer can connect with each other and UPI system Is able to identify everyone.

Through this, there will be crores of transactions in a day, but this system manages the work very easily but at UPI a limit is kept per transaction and that limit is one lakh rupees i.e. you get up to one lakh in a transaction. You can pay

Why is UPI important?

  1. Through UPI we can make real-time payments.
  2. In UPI, per transaction very few have to pay only 50 paise.
  3. You do not need to get involved in various things while making payment with UPI, you just have to open the app and enter your UPI PIN and the mobile number of the one to transfer.
  4. UPI is directly connected to your bank account, so you do not need to transfer from bank to wallet and from wallet to bank.
  5. You do not need to give your important bank details to anyone to transfer or recieve money through it.
  6. You can use it anytime, anywhere.
  7. It is very secure.
