UPI Transaction Limit UPSC NOTE

 What is UPI Transaction Limit?

  • As transactions facilitated by the Unified Payments Interface (UPI) breach record highs, banks have opted for daily limits. 

  • These are over and above the already imposed ceilings mandated by the facilitator, the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), in 2021.

  • At present, users can make up to 20 transactions or ₹1 lakh in a single day — either all at once or through the day.

  • For certain specific categories of transactions such as the capital markets, collections (such as bills, among others), insurance and forward inward remittances, the limit is ₹2 lakh.

What is UPI Transaction Limit?

  • In December 2021, the limit for the UPI-based ASBA (Application Supported by Blocked Amount) IPO and retail direct schemes was increased to ₹5 lakh for each transaction.

  • The conversation now revolves around banks and apps coming up with their own guidelines for transactions.

Why limit is imposed?

  • Payments interface looks to expand its footprint (recall the boarding of non-resident accounts having international numbers into the ecosystem).

  • Its growing utility in daily lives

  • Limits would help maintain an essential security infrastructure and its seamless functioning. 

  • The interface looks to expand its use-case, as also called for in the proposed pilot project for coin-vending machines with UPI as the facilitator.

  • The limits are set balancing out customer convenience and potential fraud/risk concerns.

  • The total number of reported UPI frauds had also increased about 13% in comparison to the previous financial year.

  • However, this was alongside a decline in the fraud to sales ratio at 0.0015%.
