Must read

National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) has introduced a faster and simpler way to send any amount less than ₹200 without using UPI PIN. UPI Lite will be used to send money up to ₹200 without any buffer in between. 

“UPI LITE means the service provided to you by your Issuing Bank whereby low value transactions can be carried out using an ‘on-device’ wallet; and is a Feature enabled on the BHIM App,” said BHIM UPI on their official website. 

It is an on-device feature which will work through two third-party apps that are Paytm and PhonePe. It is used to transfer small amounts of money up to ₹200 without UPI PIN so that you can send the money faster. 

As 50% of total UPI transactions in India are of ₹200 or less and 75% of retail transactions including cash are either ₹100 or less. So let’s see if this new UPI Lite will be successful or not.
