The transaction value has also doubled in this time frame.
“Amazing! UPI crossed the 2-billion transaction mark in October 2020. The UPI volume has grown 80 per cent from 1.14 billion transactions in October 2019 to 2.07 billion transactions last month. The transaction value has jumped 101 per cent from Rs 1,91,359.94 crore to Rs 3,86,106.74 crore,” Kant tweeted.
