About UPI

Yes Bank Upi

Unified Payment Interface or UPI is developed by National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) to offer a digital platform for all monetary transactions in India. YES Bank has also launched its own UPI application to match with the pace of the constantly evolving economic structure of the country.

Let’s try and understand UPI in detail before using it. UPI is a digital platform using which people can easily transfer money from one account to another using their smartphones. It is set up on the structure of Immediate Payment Service (IMPS) to allow money transfers via Virtual Payment Address (VPA). A VPA is a unique identity or address which is given to the user at the time of signing up with a UPI Application.

This identity can be a user’s VPA, mobile number, Aadhaar number or account number combined with the IFSC code. A user can choose any convenient username as long as all the required details have been appropriately furnished. The payment made through the ID can be confirmed using MPIN or Mobile Banking Personal Identification Number. The MPIN is a code that is shared only between the sender and the receiver, thus making the transaction secure.

Yes Bank UPI

YES Bank now offers UPI services to all its account holders.  The service will allow account holders to transfer money instantly over the phone without any need to visit the bank or fill up any forms.

YES Bank UPI offers following services to all its users:

  • Financial Services: Various financial services can be availed with YES Bank UPI including utility bill payments, rent payments, etc.
  • Funds Transfer: The app offers easy funds transfer service from one account to another.
  • Sending Money: For sending money to a user, one can use the UPI by simply adding the recipient to the list of beneficiaries.

  • Change MPIN: Similar to changing passwords, users can easily change existing MPIN via the UPI application.

FAQs

1. What is UPI?

Unified Payments Interface (UPI) is a real-time payment solution governed by National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) to facilitate inter-bank transactions. It is monitored by the Reserve Bank of India and allows instant funds transfer between bank accounts on any verified mobile device. UPI uses IMPS (Immediate Payment Service) for funds transfer from one account to another.

2. Can I view my transaction history?

Yes. YES Bank UPI app allows you to view transaction history. In the ‘Home’ screen of your UPI app, select the ‘Transaction History’ option to view all your past and pending transactions.

3. If I happen to lose my mobile, can anyone else access my bank account and make transactions?

In case you lose your mobile phone, you can block your mobile number so that no transactions can be initiated from your mobile number. Also, UPI PIN is essential while making any transaction via UPI. Since this is always confidential, no one can make transactions using your lost mobile.

4. Money was debited from my YES Bank account but I did not receive any confirmation message. What do I do?

After completing a transaction, you must check for success status on your YES Bank UPI app. Also, an SMS is sent to your registered mobile number from the bank. It is highly recommended that you contact the customer support of the bank if you do not receive a confirmation within an hour of completing the transaction.

5. Is UPI the same as a regular wallet or a bank account?

UPI is not the same as a regular wallet or bank account. Traditional mobile wallets take a specified amount of money from the user and store that money in their accounts. On the other hand, UPI withdraws and deposits funds directly from the bank account whenever a transaction is requested.
