New Delhi: In the new era of digitalisation, we are all heavily dependant on UPI payments at all times of the day. If you are among those who use UPI payments, here is an important information by the National Payment Corporation of India (NPCI).

NPCI on its Twitter handle informed that UPI platform will go under the upgradation process for the next few days. NPCI runs the Unified Payments Interface (UPI) used for real-time payments between peers or at merchants' end while making purchases.

NPCI mentioned that the upgradation process will take place from 1 am to 3 am over the next few days and that users may face inconvenience. However, it did not specify the days the upgradation process will take place, saying that it will take place for the “next few days.” Users should avoid making transactions during the time specified by the NPCI.

“For you to have a better, safer payment experience, we’re upgrading our UPI platform. UPI users may face inconvenience from midnight 1am to 3am for the next few days,” the official NPCI account on Twitter mentioned.
