Unified Payments Interface App

UPI stands for Unified Payments Interface (UPI) which is a platform provided by NPCI to facilitate inter-operability amongst multiple bank accounts into a single mobile application (of any participating bank), merging several banking features, seamless fund routing & merchant payments into one hood.
The NPCI does not charge anything for the Unified payment system. It is freely available to the participating banks. In turn, banks are also not charging anything for their apps and facilitation. Everyone is trying to keep this system free so that people can widely use this new mode of digital transaction. However, in future banks may charge some amount for using their app. As of now, people are getting cash back and rewards for using these apps.
