Learn the predictions for UPI payments in 2020

What bodes well for the future of UPI?

Crisil’s research shows that digital payments in India seem to grow at a CAGR of 12.7% and may jump to Rs. 4,055 lakh crore in FY24 with a five-year CAGR of 20%. Also, prediction shows that UPI payments will dominate the payments space with 59% payment transactions.

Since its inception in 2016, UPI has been making strides in the payments sector in India. With around 1.31 billion transactions in December 2019, it has become one of the sought after payments platform in India.

Future of UPI Payments

At this juncture, it is imperative to learn the future predictions for the UPI payments system. In the course of this blog, let us learn more about the future of the UPI payments system.

1. International launch of UPI Payments in Singapore

The pilot demo of BHIM UPI took place in Singapore in November 2019. It demonstrated a perfect collaboration between the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) and Network for Electronic Transfers (NETS) of Singapore. The project is expected to go live by February 2020. Interestingly, this is the first step in internationalizing UPI payments.

The QR code would allow anyone with the BHIM App to make online payments across the payment terminals in Singapore. Further, the international launch comes to the aid of businesses to seamlessly import and export across the borders.

2. UPI Payments-Artificial intelligence link

Artificial intelligence will determine the success of UPI based payments in the future. For example, AI can seamlessly incorporate the auto-debit payment feature. This removes the hassle of remembering the money transfer leading to efficient and effective payment transfer. Also, the chances of human errors get reduced to a minimum.

Further, the use of Artificial Intelligence in the digital payments domain eases the compliance requirements by automating the process. Automation goes a long way easing the process and standards associated with the UPI.

3. Increasing merchant transactions on UPI

UPI has become a major mode of payments not just in the Tier I cities, but also in the Tier II and Tier III cities. For example, roadside tea vendors provide a UPI payment platform in addition to the cash payment system. Small Kirana shops have started implementing UPI based payments on an extensive scale. Be it hotel bill payments or college admissions, it is here to increase the merchant transactions.

4. UPI-Credit card linkage

At present, UPI supports payment through wallets, debit cards, and net banking. Credit card functionality is not made universal. Apps like Phonepe has enabled it on their platform. Going ahead, the credit card feature will be made functional on the different payment applications.

On the whole, the future of UPI looks bright and prospective. We may not be in for a surprise if UPI turns out to be the first preference for all the transactions done in India.

Banking channels face the constant issue of payment decline at the nth moment. It is due to multiple miscellaneous factors. Either, the network has timed out or the payment has been declined at the sender’s or receiver’s side. In either of the cases, artificial intelligence can reduce unintended human error by automating the process.
