Unlike WhatsApp (restricted to one million users), NPCI has given nod to Xiaomi for large group usage. Mi Pay will let users transfer fund, execute payments for several use cases including bill/recharge, water, and electricity bill using UPI framework.

It’s worth noting that Xiaomi is also planning to launch NBFC ‘Xiaomi Financial Services India’ and seeking RBI licence for it. The company also leveraged its investee KrazyBee to launch micro-lending platform – CreditBee.

UPI has been growing at a fast pace ever since its launch in November 2016. Last month, NPCI-owned digital payments railroad had crossed 500 million transactionmark.

At present, Paytm dominates the UPI ecosystem followed by PhonePe and Google Pay. In October, the SoftBank-backed firm had claimed 37 per cent of overall UPI transaction.

Meanwhile, Jio is also awaiting approval from NPCI for UPI service. Its entry along with WhatsApp will heat up competition in the segment.

With several behemoths have been competing in UPI ecosystem while some are awaiting regulator clearance, the road for Mi Pay won’t be smooth. Going forward, it would be interesting to watch how stalwarts fight for supremacy in the digital payments landscape.
