Unified Payments Interface (UPI)

The Unified Payments Interface (UPI)  is a payment system built by NPCI with Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) vision of migrating towards a ‘less-cash’ and more digital society.

The interface allows money transfer between any two bank accounts by using a smartphone. It allows a customer to pay directly from a bank account to different merchants, both online and offline, without the hassle of typing credit card details, IFSC code, or net banking/wallet passwords. The payment interface is safe as the customers only share a virtual address and provide no other sensitive information.
