UPI stands for Unified Payment Interface (UPI). It enables money to be immediately transferred via a mobile phone from one bank account to another. Payments can only be rendered via supporting mobile phone apps. The cash transactions through UPI are available 24x7.

Unified Payments Interface (UPI) is a portal developed by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) to facilitate interoperability between banks. This is a one-stop solution for using separate bank accounts to carry out transfers from a single app.

It allows all account holders to send and receive money through their smartphones with a single identifier – the Virtual Payment Address (VPA) commonly known as the UPI ID – without requiring any bank account information. Customers often do not need to know the IFSC code of the beneficiary or payer, bank account details, etc., and this allows the transaction to be quicker. So customers will make quicker transactions to their friends and merchants.

Union Bank of India UPI FAQs

1. How do I change my default account on the Union Bank of India UPI App?

Login to your Union Bank of India UPI App. Go to the Accounts section in the main menu. Pick the relevant account from the available linked accounts. Click the Set 'As Default Account' button to set the selected account to the default account. This account will be referred to as the "Primary Account"

You need to carefully check all the details of the beneficiary before making any transactions. In the event that such an error occurs, you can file a complaint from the application itself via the complaint section. In the event of a failed transaction, the balance will be refunded directly to the account within 7 working days.

3. What happens if my phone is lost or stolen?

If you lose your phone, the UPI PIN needed to approve all transactions would not be known to a third party and will therefore not be able to use the Bharat Interface for Money. In addition, you have to contact the customer service department at your bank to make sure that your account is not misused.

4. What is an UPI Mandate?

UPI Mandate is a feature that allows you to pre-authorize (Mandate) transactions to be debited from your bank account later. The mandate of the UPI is to be used in situations where money is to be transferred later, but the commitment to that is to be made now. It is likely that the sender will forget to send money later in order to establish a mandate or to make a service/merchant payment where this feature may be necessary. The account of the consumer shall be debited when the mandate is fulfilled.

5. Why am I able to see the account of my family members (my father's and my wife's accounts) while I'm attempting to add accounts to the Union Bank of India UPI?

UPI gathers the account data on the basis of the telephone number updated on bank accounts. If your mobile number is updated with your wife/mothers account, the Union Bank of India UPI App will show and allow you to connect all such accounts. You will only be able to pay via these accounts if you have a Debit card and its expiry date to set the UPI PIN for that card.
