In it's bid to bring convergence with digitization of financial services across India, after Unified Payment Inreface (UPI)BBPS Logo, The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has given approval to the Bharat Bill Payment System (BBPS). This new centralized payment system for the residents of India allows them to pay their bills and other common services from a single-interface online or offline.

The primary purpose of the BBPS is to convert India into a less cash society and move towards an electronic bill payment. It is an interoperable bill payment system that uses both online and offline types of billing.

The BBPS will be run by a network of agents and it will be accessible online too. The customers will be able to pay all of their bills ranging from electricity to telephone to school fees to government payments and more. There are multiple payment channels and payment modes available to choose from.

Customers will have the option to pay their bills by connecting directly to the online system. In this case, all the communication will take place in real-time and this online system will work just like the traditional internet banking.

Those who cannot access the BBPS online, they can head to a local agent and pay their bills. These are the same agents that used to collect bills but as of now, they operate in isolation. The BBPS will create a network of these agents and they all will be connected to the BBPS.

However, there is no denying the fact that it is a hassle to enter all your details every time you have to make a payment online. While all websites offer saving these details for easy future payments, however, they are not considered safe and are at the risk of getting stolen. To address this issue, Reserve Bank of India launched a new smartphone based service called Unified Payments Interface (UPI) in the country. UPI is being touted as the future of online banking and here is why?

What is UPI?

You can think of UPI as the advanced version of the existing Immediate Payment Service (IMPS). Some people are also calling it a virtual debit card as it does all the functions of a debit card or netbanking. However, UPI happens to be safer and more secure alternative. If you opt to make payment through the UPI method, the transfer of money takes place without using any conventional method of payment. All it takes is an app on your smartphone and support of the banks in transaction. 29 banks have already agreed to provide UPI service and as many as 21 banks have already registered as payment service providers under UPI. This is a good initiative as it only takes a couple of click and payment would be directly transferred from your bank account to the merchant's bank account.
