Critical features of UPI 2.0
Given below are all the new key features of UPOI 2.0.
One time mandate
This is one of the best features of the UPI payment system. With this, the customers can pre-authorize a Debit transaction from their linked bank account later. This UPI can be used in the scenarios where the money is to be transferred on a future date. You can schedule your payments while the money can be transferred later. The mandates are created with one-time book functionality. The customers can pre-authorize a transaction and can pay. In the case of the merchant payments or the service, this acts as an assurance to both the customer and the merchant.
This is one of the security features that come into effect during the transaction process. While registering on UPI, the user will get an option to set an MPIN via mobile PIN. The MPIN is a 4 or 6 digit number set up while registering on the UPI app.
Generating it is an easy process. You can develop it by just clicking on the create or generate MPIN tab and entering your debit card details. In the transactions, the MPIN plays a significant role and is used to authenticate a transaction. Don’t worry if you forget the MPIN. You can change it if you forget it by using the same create or generate MPIN tab.
