A unified payment interface is a medium that allows us to transfer money from several bank accounts via a mobile application. UPI employs an Immediate Payment System and Aadhar Enabled Payment System so that you can vendor payments, fund transfers, and utilize various banking features.
Dr Raghuram Rajan, former RBI Governor, implemented UPI on April 11, 2016, in 21 banks. But now it has extended to all Indian banks.
But we remind you that every bank has a different transaction limit for transferring money. Do not worry about it. In this article, we cover the different UPI transaction limits per day, and per transaction for different banks.
Who are the participants in UPI?
- Payee Bank
- Remitter Bank
- Beneficiary Bank
- Bank Account Holders
- Payer Payment Service Provider

According to the National Payment Corporation of India:
- The general UPI transaction limit per day was one lacs but now 2 lakhs
- The number of UPI transaction limits per day was twenty but now ten.
