In this digital world, we very much depend on the internet. It becomes more important when we talk about fund transfer or UPI. Have you ever imagined what will happen if your internet connection is lost while making transfers? Well, there is a solution for this issue, so don’t panic. You can now make ‘UPI payments without the internet‘. If there is no internet, the *99# facility of the National Payments Corporation of India (NCPI) can be quite helpful.
*99# is NPCI’s USSD based mobile banking service. The service was launched in November 2012. Previously, it was only available for BSNL and MTNL users. You must note that your phone number must be linked with the bank account to make a UPI payment through *99#. Additionally, one-time registration is also required on the BHIM App from the same phone number.
