Meanwhile, NPCI-regulated inter-bank electronic funds transfer system (IMPS) has once again become the hottest option chosen for fund transfer. The instant payment feature recorded 190.18 million transactions worth Rs 1,76,288.88 crore.

In February, IMPS registered  166.37 million transactions amounting to 1,49,342.60 crore.

The growth in UPI transactions has come on the back of faster adoption in UPI-based payments apps such as government promoted BHIM and private players like Paytm, Google Pay, Phonepe and others.

While BHIM continued to struggle for the past 3-4 months, Google Pay and PhonePe have grabbed the opportunity to compete against the market leader – Paytm.

For instance, Paytm reportedly clocked 221 million transaction volume in January followed by PhonePe and Google Pay that recorded about 220 million UPI transaction each.

Recently, Google Pay has also revealed that it achieved 45 million monthly active userslandmark and hit $81 billion annualised transaction run rate in March.

Apart from the aforementioned entities, there are 139 banks live on UPI platform.

Over the past year, domestic and global players have been throwing their hat in the fray to taste the success of UPI in India. Of late, Xiaomi and Amazon have launched their UPI-powered payment feature in India, on the other hand, Reliance Jio and Tencent-owned WeChat are also in the pipeline to launch it soon.
