UPI, National Payments Corporation of India (

The Unified Payments Interface (UPI), founded by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), has changed the landscape of digital payments in India. UPI enables instant, 24/7 fund transfers between bank accounts with just a few taps on your smartphone. While remarkably convenient, like any payment system, technical glitches and other issues can occur.

Here are some of the most frequent problems users encounter with UPI:

Notice - Be alert! Don't share the financial or banking details and don't share OTP to customer care executive. Protect yourself from Frauds and Scams. Report to Cyber Crime Bureau or Call 1930 as soon as possible to protect your earnings and others.
  • Transaction Failures: Transactions can fail due to network issues, incorrect details, or insufficient funds.
  • Debited But Not Credited: At times, money might be deducted from your account but not reach the intended recipient.
  • Incorrect Transfers: You may accidentally transfer money to the wrong account.
  • Fraudulent Activities: Unauthorized access to your UPI account can lead to fraudulent transactions.

Follow these steps to register your complaint and seek a resolution for your UPI payment issues:

Step 1: File a Complaint to the UPI Payment Aggregator

If you are using an app or payment aggregator, contact the UPI app (e.g., Paytm, BHIM UPI, Google Pay, PhonePe) you used for the transaction. In your payment app, you can:

  • Navigate to the app’s “Help” or “Support” section.
  • Chat live or call the support team.
  • File a detailed complaint and submit the same transaction-related information as before.

Step 2: Contact Your Bank

Your second point of contact should be your bank where your UPI-linked account is held.

Most banks have dedicated customer care numbers, online banking portals, or in-branch support to register complaints. You can call the helpline number, report online, or email to your bank. For serious issues, you may visit the local branch office.

Provide essential details to your bank like:

  • Transaction ID
  • Date and Time
  • Amount involved
  • The nature of the issue

Step 3: Escalate to NPCI

If both your bank and the UPI app fail to offer a solution, escalate the matter to NPCI for any technical issues or payment disputes (specifically for the BHIM UPI app).

  • Visit the UPI Dispute Redressal Mechanism form of NPCI:
  • Register your complaint online.
  • Provide grievance details with transaction ID (if required)

For an issue regarding NFS ATM, RuPay, IMPS, and AEPS, register an online complaint to NPCI or check the status.

Step 4: Approach the Banking Ombudsman (RBI)

If all else fails or is not resolved within 30 days, you have the right to file a complaint with the Banking Ombudsman. This authority, appointed by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), offers impartial resolution of banking-related grievances.

You can find the details of your area’s Banking Ombudsman on the RBI website.

Other Financial Regulators:

  • SEBI (Securities and Exchange Board of India): For issues related to stocks, securities, and the capital markets.
  • Insurance Ombudsman, IRDAI (Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India): For complaints regarding insurance policies or providers.


Report any payment issues as soon as you notice them. Keep records of transactions, error messages, and your communications with all involved support teams.

Resolution may take some time; follow up regularly for updates.

Safety Tips:

Use a strong, unique UPI PIN and change it frequently and only download UPI apps from official app stores.

Finally, never share your UPI PIN, OTPs, or bank details with anyone. This will help you to protect the UPI transactions while minimizing the risk of problems.
