Hello friends! Do you want to know what is UPI? And what is its full form?

We already told above, that the UPI full form is Unified Payment Interface. But below, we will give you information about its features and how you will register with it.

People in India still do not know much about UPI. It was launched by NPCI(National Payments Corporation of India) in 2016 and both NPCI and UPI operate under RBI(Reserve Bank of India).

You must have heard about the digital wallet!

But the only difference between a digital wallet and UPI is that in UPI, money is directly transferred from one bank account to another bank account.

According to me, it is better than all-digital payment systems, whether you talk about online banking and net banking, whether you talk about credit cards and debit cards or whether you talk about digital wallets.

Transaction Limits.

If the question is coming in your mind, can we transfer as much money as we want through UPI?

So here we are going to answer your question and give full information that how you can do the transaction even after the limit is over.

If we talk about Bhim UPI, then in this you can transfer only 40000 money in one day and only 20000 at a time. And let us tell you that this is an app published by the Government of India.

But in private UPI apps such as Google Pay, PhonePay, Paytm, etc. you can transfer 10 times a day and at most, you can transfer only one lakh rupees.

If the UPI Transaction Limit expires at any time from your bank, then you add your UPI app to your other bank and you can do the transaction again.

Top Best UPI app in India 2020.

When UPI started in 2016, at that time, BHIM was the only Android application in which people were doing UPI transactions. But now a lot of private companies are launching new apps in India for online transactions.

But we recommend that instead of using all types of applications, you should use some good companies’ mobile applications and stay safe. As the digitalization of transactions is increasing, online fraud is also increasing. So be careful!

Below we are providing a list of some good UPI apps, which I am also using. And you can also use it.
