Listen to this article

UPI (Unified Payments Interface) server has been down for more than an hour, causing disruptions in making payments across the country.

This comes as Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his monthly Mann Ki Baat radio broadcast on Sunday, hailed online payments, saying UPI transactions worth 20,000 crore are now taking place daily.

Social media platforms are flooded with complaints as people expressed their dissatisfaction about facing problems in payments.

Users said that transactions are not getting processed via major UPI apps, including PhonePe, Google Pay and Paytm.

However, the UPI server has been restored now. "UPI services are working as usual. Some users may have experienced issues while using UPI for a brief period, around 8 PM (on April 24). The momentary issue with some UPI ecosystem partners has been resolved," the companyThe National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) stated.

The UPI server has gone down twice in 2022, the most recent instance being on 9 January.
