UPI 2.0 and revised UPI transaction limit
With version 2.0, UPI is likely to include a bunch of new features like the doubling of transaction limits to Rs 2 lakh, and the ability to link overdraft (OD) accounts to UPI.
UPI transaction limit by frequency
Vide NPCI Circular dated October 22, 2018, UPI transaction frequency limit has been revised from 20 to 10 transactions per day for Peer to Peer transfers (P2P).
The UPI transaction limit per day has been reduced as many people were using the UPI platform multiple times just to earn rewards.
Note: This limit is not applicable if a person makes a payment to the merchant. The limit is only for the Peer to Peer Transfers (P2P).
UPI as the Preferred Payment Mode.
UPI is set to become the de-facto mode of payment both for P2P (person to person) & P2M (person to merchant) transactions.
