UPI Full Form and List of UPI Enabled Banks With FAQs related to UPI


Do you know what UPI and UPI Full-Form are? Over the past few days, we have been facing difficulties in money transactions because the Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi, today took a strong stand against corruption. The old closing notes of 500 and 1000 have.

Obviously, due to this decision, the bribes will eliminate the sweat, but the commoner is also facing many troubles. Given these problems, the Prime Minister has suggested that now all of us should promote a cashless economy.

A cashless economy means we now have to leave money transactions by hand. Online payment should be made.


Moving towards a cashless economy is not so easy, but every tricky thing becomes easy by trying. We all know the importance of the Internet, but there are many such places in our country where people do not have this facility until now.

And many people know about the Internet but do not know how to use it in a good way like older adults. So in such a situation, youth like us must teach them to use the Internet, which can significantly help their everyday lives.

Now the, if to make online payments by leaving the transaction of money, how do we do that? There are many mobile applications through which we can do online money transfers with help of mobile like Paytm, MobiKwik, Freecharge etc.


Many of you must have used one of these to do mobile banking. Apart from these apps, there is another easy way to do mobile banking. From anywhere at any time, 24 hours a day, whether it is a holiday or not, you can do money transactions comfortably, and its name is UPI.

Today we will learn about what is UPI and UPI Full-Form from this article.

What is UPI

The full name of UPI is Unified Payments Interface, this is a method with the help of which you can send money from your bank account anywhere, at any time, to your friend’s account or relatives’ performance, and if you have to pay someone Even if you want to do it, you will be able to pay with the help of UPI quickly.


You can make any payment with the help of this, like if you have bought some goods online, then you can pay with UPI, or if you have made some purchases by going to the market, you can still use UPI.

You can make all these payments through UPI: taxi fare, movie ticket money, airline ticket money, mobile recharge, and DTH recharge. And it will be swift, and immediately money will be transferred from your bank account to the front bank account in front of you.

NPCI has taken the initiative to start UPI. The full name of NPCI is National Payments Corporation of India; this organisation currently manages the ATMs of all the banks in India and the interbank transactions happening between them.


For example, if you have an Axis bank ATM card, you can withdraw your money by going to ICICI bank ATM. NPCI takes care of all the transactions happening between these banks.

In the same way, with the help of UPI, you can also send money from one of your bank accounts to the other bank account.

How to use UPI?

To use UPI, you must first install its apps on your Android phone. Many bank applications support UPI, such as Andhra Bank, Bank of Maharashtra, Axis bank, ICICI bank, etc.

You must go to the Google Play Store on your phone and find and install the UPI app of the bank where you have an account. After installing it, you must sign in and create your account by showing your bank details.

After that, you will get a Virtual ID, where you generate your ID; it can be your aadhar card number, phone number, or an address like an email id. After doing just that, your work is over there.


After creating an account in your UPI, you can easily send and take money.

How does UPI work?

UPI is based on IMPS, i.e. Immediate Payment Service system, which we use while using other net banking apps on mobile.

This service can be used every time, every day, even on holidays. And UPI also works on this system, but here the question arises: if UPI and all other types of net banking apps work on the same system, what is the difference between them?


UPI is different from all those apps; how? I want to tell you this by giving an example.

Suppose you need money for your friend or relative and you have to send money to them as soon as possible, then what did you do in earlier apps? You open those apps. Login, then you must add the person you want to send money to.

While adding, many details have to be entered, and for that, you should know all the banking details such as you should know the account number of that person, then his IFSC code, branch name etc. have to fill similar information, in which a lot of It takes time.


But all these things are not required in UPI; you must enter the UPI ID of the person I told you above, and you can easily send money by selecting how much money to send.

Neither the hassle of entering any bank details nor it takes much time, and there is no need to tell the person in front of which bank his account is in or with which name his account is registered. Without knowing all this, we can send money quickly and safely with the help of UPI.

There is also a limit on sending money in UPI, and that limit is Rs 1 lakh per transaction, and the fee for sending money is 50 paise per transaction; this is a minimal amount that means you will not have to spend much money to send money and You will also be able to take advantage of instant money transfer.
