UPI payments crossed the INR 12 trillion mark in October, last year. Media reports said that In November 2022, about 7.30 billion transactions amounting to INR 11.90 trillion took place through the platform. The inexpensive medium for cashless transactions has been gaining traction on a month-on-month (MoM) basis.

Since its launch in 2016, UPI has been the most preferred platform for Indians to make and receive payments. With more penetration among users and merchants across different locations—domestic and international, UPI can turn into an important financial tool across the world.
