As the first payments bank to UPI LITE, the Bank continues in its tradition of building technology-led innovative solutions for its users, revolutionising everyday transactions.

UPI LITE, a feature enabled by National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) for multiple small value UPI transactions, was launched first on the Paytm app. With UPI LITE, users can carry out a large number of small value UPI payments without worrying about the bank cap on UPI transactions. 

Once loaded, a UPI LITE allows a user to do instant transactions of up to ₹200, making the entire experience secure and seamless. A maximum of ₹2,000 can be added twice in a day to UPI LITE, making the cumulative daily usage up to ₹4,000. 

Further, payments made using UPI LITE de-clutters the passbook of PPB users. These small value transactions would now show in the Paytm balance and history section. According to NPCI, users will receive a daily transaction history of all the payments made through UPI LITE as an SMS from their banks.
