Kotak Mahindra BHIM UPI

Kotak Mahindra BHIM UPI allows you to send/receive money using unique identifiers called 'Virtual Payment Addresses (VPAs)/UPI ID' for e.g. custname@Kotak. UPI payments are sent directly from your bank account and hence you do not need a debit card, credit card or the bank account details or IFSC codes.

There is no hassle of adding a beneficiary before transferring money. You can transfer to another UPI recipient using their phone number or UPI ID. You can make bill payments to shopkeepers and merchants by scanning the QR codes at their location.

Kotak Bank customers can use the BHIM UPI through their Kotak Mobile App. Non-Kotak customers can also use the Kotak BHIM UPI by downloading the ‘BHIM KotakPay’ app.
