Share post:

Unified Payments Interface (UPI) transactions witnessed a slight decline in April, with the number of transactions falling by 1% compared to the previous month. Despite this dip, the year-on-year growth remains significant, indicating the continued adoption and popularity of digital payments in India.

Data from the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) reveals that UPI transactions totaled 1,330 crore in April, down from 1,344 crore in March. However, compared to the previous year, the transaction count has increased by 50%, reflecting the growing reliance on digital payment methods.

In terms of transaction volume, April recorded Rs 19.64 lakh crore, marginally lower than March’s figure of Rs 19.78 lakh crore. Nevertheless, the year-on-year growth stands at an impressive 40%, underscoring the sustained momentum in digital transactions.

The expansion of India’s payment infrastructure has been notable, with UPI services now available in other countries such as Nepal, France, and New Zealand. This expansion reflects the growing recognition of UPI as a reliable and efficient payment solution beyond India’s borders.

The NPCI, in collaboration with the government, continues to introduce new features and services to enhance the adoption of UPI. These initiatives aim to make digital payments more accessible, convenient, and secure for users across various sectors.
