NPCI’s Real-Time Payment System

Over 60 per cent of the retail transactions in India are executed by UPI- a real-time payment system provided by NPCI. This payment system covers a huge volume of transactions being made across the country. 75 per cent share is covered by the transactions worth less than ₹100 out of a total 60 per cent. So, the majority of UPI transactions are low valued.

In March 540 Cr UPI transactions were made by the users worth ₹9.60 lakh Cr. Concerning lowering the load on banks and in-house servers, the NPCI is working continually to establish an efficient offline UPI transaction system.
