Curious about Immediate Payment Service
Yes, you can access IMPS (Immediate Payment Service) through your bank's mobile app. Most banks in India provide mobile banking applications that offer a range of banking services, including IMPS for fund transfers.
To access IMPS through your bank's mobile app, you generally need to follow these steps:
1. Download the Mobile Banking App: Visit your bank's official website or the app store relevant to your mobile device (such as Google Play Store for Android or the App Store for iOS) and download your bank's mobile banking app.
2. Install and Open the App: Install the app on your mobile device and open it.
3. Register for Mobile Banking: If you haven't registered for mobile banking previously, you'll typically need to go through a onetime registration process. This may involve providing your bank account details, personal information, and setting up authentication credentials.
4. Log In to the Mobile App: Once you have registered, log in to the mobile app using the credentials you set during the registration process. This may include entering your username, password, and any additional authentication factors required by your bank, such as an OTP (OneTime Password) sent to your registered mobile number.
5. Locate the IMPS Feature: Once you are logged in to the mobile banking app, navigate through the app's menu or options to locate the IMPS feature. It is usually found under the "Fund Transfer" or "Payments" section.
6. Initiate an IMPS Transaction: Follow the instructions provided in the app to initiate an IMPS transaction. You will typically need to provide details such as the recipient's bank account number, IFSC code, and the transaction amount. You may also be required to set up a beneficiary (if not already done) for future transactions.
7. Authenticate the Transaction: Verify the transaction details and authenticate the transaction using the mobile app's builtin security features, such as entering your Mobile Personal Identification Number (MPIN) or using biometric authentication (fingerprint or face recognition, if supported).
8. Confirm and Complete the Transaction: Once the authentication is successful, review the transaction details one last time and confirm the transaction. The app will provide a confirmation message or transaction reference number upon successful completion.
By following these steps, you can access IMPS services through your bank's mobile app, making it convenient to initiate fund transfers, check transaction history, and manage your banking activities on the go. Remember to adhere to your bank's transaction limits, security guidelines, and keep your mobile banking app updated for the best experience and security.
