RBI’s Deputy Governor (Shri Rabi Sankar), Chief General Manager (Shri P. Vasudevan), Shri Nandan Nilekani and NPCI’s MD & CEO (Shri Dilip Asbe) have launched ‘UPI One World’ for foreign nationals visiting India. The launch was conducted at the JW Marriott, Prestige Golfshire Resort in Bengaluru which is hosting the first G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors (FMCBG) meeting under the G20 Indian Presidency. Transcorp is one of four entities permitted by RBI and NPCI to issue UPI One World to foreign nationals; and the only entity with both Foreign Exchange (AD2) and Payments (PPI) licenses required to exchange currency and thereafter issue UPI One World wallets. Mr. Gerardo Zuniga (Director of International Affairs, Bank of Mexico) was issued a UPI One World wallet and successfully transacted using Transcorp’s ‘@trans’ handle.

Ayan Agarwal, CEO (Payment Systems), Transcorp said, “We’re honoured to work for Nation and Network to showcase the prowess of UPI to the world. UPI One World will be powered by Transcorp’s trustworthy ‘@trans’ handle; we remain grateful to RBI’s progressive policies and superb support from NPCI. Transcorp aims to service the tens of millions of visitors who travel to India but till now have not been able to pay at the 50 million UPI QR accepting merchants. We welcome partnerships which leverage both our Payments and Forex licenses to deliver compliant and curated financial products to Indian and global citizens.”

UPI One World will initially be offered via the Transcorp-Cheq app to all G20 nationals and Non-Resident Indians (NRIs). A simple KYC based process followed by mobile registration will allow users to load money via International Currency/Cards and pay seamlessly at any QR code in India using the ‘@trans’ handle which operates on the interoperable UPI 2.0 rails.

Commenting on the same, Sudhanshu Shekhar of Cheq (Transcorp’s first partner to launch UPI on PPI), mentioned “We are delighted to be at the forefront of global financial innovation based out of India and work towards nation building and maximising the potential of UPI. It has been a true pleasure working closely with NPCI and Transcorp to deliver UPI One World in under two weeks after the Reserve Bank of India updated its Master Direction.”
