The Unified Payment Interface (UPI) saw a 12% growth in the total transaction volumes taking place between June and July 2017, according to data published by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI). The NPCI is a company owned by Indian banks, and owns and operates payments systems such as UPI and IMPS. The total number of transactions in July were around 160% higher than they were at the end of January 2017.

The amount transacted increased by 10% to Rs 3,411.4 crores over June 2017. The amount transacted in July 2017 was double (101% higher) of what it was in January 2017.
