What is the UPI, how to use it?

The UPI is an arrangement that is convenient for sending multiple accounts of one bank through the  UPI same mobile application, sending money easily, paying in one place at one place! In addition to this, the method of depositing the peer to peer amount in the manner in which the amount is sent accordingly on the scheduled date and as required.

No need to login while sending money from UPI, no need for account numbers, IFSC is not needed.

Only a small user name (user name) that is called VPA or a virtual payment address in the UPI can send money to anyone in just a few seconds with the help of VPA!

What is the need of the UPI?

Practices like Net Banking have been introduced to make transactions more secure on the Internet. But sending money from them is difficult for quite a few times and matches. Along with this, there is a lot of confusion about which service you can get from the crowd of many options! That's why a straightforward approach has been initiated and this name is called UPI. This method can be used on any holiday for all days. And you have mobile handsets used for it!

Suppose you go to a nearest shop or if you want to send it to a bank account, you need to get information about their account and add beneficiary to the bank when paying them at the time. It can take time, as well as adding OTP every time. Your PIN is not secure when using plastic money such as a credit / debit card. 

Mobile Wallet has to pay the amount in that wallet. The solution to all of this is that the UPA deals directly with the bank.

The difference between mobile wallet and UPI: The difference between mobile wallet and utility like PETIm is that the wallet has to be paid in cash from the bank. 

Money is not lost in mobile wallet as well, but it is not used properly. But in the UPA, it is traded directly from bank account. So, you can easily send money by reading half the time! The UPA gets accumulated directly from one's bank account.

If there is a situation that the mobile wallet will be discontinued immediately due to the UPA, the UPA will be included in mobile wallet by increasing the use of the UPA in the future.

Uses of UPI:

Presently, all the works can be done by Net Banking through the UPI! (Sending money, accepting money, recharging, paying bills, booking tickets, etc.)

Although the current mobile wallet is popular, the use of UPI in other places, such as taxis, cabs and autos, will be used in the near future when it comes to the simplicity of the UPA.
