Unified Payment Interface – A BFSI Growth Accelerator

UPI

The National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), in collaboration with the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), and the Indian Banks Association (IBA), has launched the Unified Payments Interface (UPI).

The UPI is a single platform that brings together a variety of banking services and features into one place. We can use a cell phone number, virtual payment address (UPI ID) or a QR code to make real-time bank-to-bank payments. Hence, with just a PIN and the UPI ID, the user can quickly make payments.

  • Directly raising a complaint using a mobile app.
  • Enabling Autopay for recurring payments.

Third-Party Validation / Account Validation

Accounting fraud, cybercrime, identity fraud, money laundering and other types of fraud are common among securities, trading, and mutual fund businesses. To mitigate the danger, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has regulated that all payments to such companies be made specifically from pre-registered bank accounts by their consumers. A pre-registered bank account is one for which the customer provides the information with the firms in these sectors at the time of registration or enrolling.

Third-Party Validation (TPV) is a mechanism ensuring that the consumer is only paying from a pre-registered the bank account. All other payments, when made, are either declined or immediately refunded to the customer.
