Union Government launched e-RUPI - specific digital payment solution on 2nd August 2021. Over the years, several programmes have been launched to ensure that the benefits reach its intended beneficiaries in a targeted and leak-proof manner. The concept of electronic voucher takes forward this vision of Good Governance.
e-RUPI is a cashless and contactless instrument for digital payment. It is a QR code or SMS string-based e-Voucher, which is delivered to the mobile of the beneficiaries. The users of this seamless one-time payment mechanism will be able to redeem the voucher without a card or internet banking access, at the service provider. It has been developed by National Payments Corporation of India on its UPI platform.
