UPI has become popular not only in India but all over the world. India did what developed countries could not do. India has revolutionized digital payment modes. India has created a Unified Payment Interface (UPI Payment) to make secure and instant payments. Based on that, now money can be easily sent anywhere from the street to Delhi. From vegetable sellers on the streets to seven-star hotels, the era of QR codes has arrived. Payment can be made by scanning it through the app on the smart phone. Now many alternatives to this method are being tried. India has also started experimenting with digital currency. This experiment has been going on since the beginning of this year. Now the facility of UPI payment has been provided through e-Rupee. Some banks have taken the initiative for this.
