India and Singapore have enabled real-time cross-border transactions between the two countries. On Tuesday, India linked its Unified Payments Interface (UPI) system with Singapore’s PayNow system. This collaboration is the first of its kind between two nations and will allow users in both India and Singapore to make instant money transfers across borders. The interoperability between the UPI and PayNow payment systems marks a significant milestone in digital payments integration between countries.
UPI, or Unified Payments Interface, is a real-time payment system that has become increasingly popular in India. The platform allows users to send and receive money directly from their bank accounts, without the need for a physical check or an intermediary.
With the introduction of the UPI Paynow Linkage, users will be able to make cross-border transactions using UPI. The platform will allow users to send money from India to other countries, and vice versa, using their UPI IDs. The platform will also support multiple languages and currencies, making it accessible to a wider range of users.
The NPCI says that the UPI Paynow Linkage will provide users with a secure and convenient way to make cross-border transactions. The platform will use advanced security measures to protect users’ financial information and transactions.
