HDFC UPI- How to Register, Limit, and Charges

The HDFC UPI interface allows its customers to transfer funds easily with the help of HDFC UPI ID/VPA to the beneficiary’s account. To make a UPI transfer, the user does not require any kind of bank details, IFSC Code, account number, etc. The only requirement is of downloading HDFC UPI App on smartphones via Google Play Store or Apple Store for Android or IOS devices respectively. 

The UPI interface allows customers to go cashless and transact using a smartphone using only a Virtual Payment Address (VPA). The handle name of HDFC UPI ID or VPA has the suffix- @hdfcbank. Therefore, to initiate a transaction via UPI there is no such need to add beneficiaries to make transfers such as NEFT, IMPS, etc. Once a VPA is created, one has to create an m-PIN and link all bank accounts through the app.

A user can have access to UPI 24*7, i.e. a transfer can be made via UPI at any time of the day with the help of the Internet, without worrying about the HDFC Bank timings.
