Can I use UPI without an internet connection?
Curious about Unified Payments Interface
No, UPI (Unified Payments Interface) requires an active internet connection to perform transactions. UPI transactions are processed through mobile applications or banking apps that connect to the internet to facilitate the transfer of funds between bank accounts. The internet connection is necessary to establish a secure connection between the user's device and the UPI platform for transaction authorization and verification.
Without an internet connection, it is not possible to initiate or complete UPI transactions. It is important to ensure that you have a reliable internet connection, either through mobile data or WiFi, when using UPI for financial transactions.
