In a while it went LIVE on TATA Neu, Freecharge & Payzapp as effectively inside few hours. With this HDFC Financial institution grew to become the primary non-public sector financial institution to take action.

Rewards on UPI Spends
Tata Neu Infinity CC is at present crediting base RPs i.e. 1.5% Neucoins on cost by way of UPI cost mode, which is nice.
HDFC Financial institution days again got here out with a notification that it’ll restrict RPs to 500 per 30 days on all HDFC Rupay CCs on UPI transactions. This implies max. spends will be ~ 33334/- per 30 days with a purpose to get 500 RPs.
As we get NeuCoins right here and never RPs, this appears little ambiguous. In follow although I’ve been getting 1.5% on all transactions to this point. Have in mind this may increasingly change in future as per above 500 per 30 days rule.
Make hay whereas the solar shines!
Transaction Limits on UPI
- 5000 INR for first 24 hrs
- 1L per day per card
- 2L per day per card (for some particular MCC codes)
Other than that, there isn’t a restrict to the variety of transactions carried out by way of linked bank card on UPI.
My pretty giant transaction by way of Rupay CC on UPI went efficiently. 1 extra transaction which might have taken the cumulative spends to greater than 1L, acquired failed vindicating the above transaction restrict rule.
QR Cost Expertise
Although I’ve been ready so as to add Infinity CC to BHIM first on inaugural day itself i.e. 14th Feb 23 after which to TATA Neu, Freecharge, Payzapp as effectively inside 24 hours adopted by on Paytm (Beta model), transaction expertise on these have different fairly a bit. Listed here are my experiences–
- BHIM App- Flawless everytime on Paytm/Amazon QR largely & Gpay as soon as
- Payzapp- Tried twice on Paytm QR & profitable
- TATA Neu/ Freecharge- Tried on Paytm & Gpay QR, failed everytime
- Paytm- Profitable everytime
At the moment there isn’t a MDR charged to prospects utilizing their Rupay Credit score Card on UPI. NPCI is probably going working to make it win-win to banks, prospects & retailers.
Hope the Rupay/UPI expertise will get higher over time throughout all apps and cost gateways with out compromising on rewards.
