UPI or the Unified Payments Interface is a real-time payment system that is used to instantly transfer money from one bank account to another using the mobile app. To use this facility, you just need to link your bank account with the UPI app. Also, an individual can operate more than one bank account through one UPI app.
Here are steps to withdraw money from the ATM using a UPI app:
Step1: Firstly open any UPI app like Google Pay, BHIM, Paytm, PhonePe, Amazon on your smartphone
Step 2: Then you need to scan the QR code shown on the ATM screen
Step 3: In the next step, just enter the cash amount you want to withdraw and then press the proceed button. Remember you will be able to withdraw only Rs 5,000 at a time using this facility.
Step 4: In the next step, after clicking the proceed button, you will have to type in 4 or 6 digit UPI PIN
Step 5: The cash will be dispensed from the ATM which you can collect.
So, next time if you forget to carry debit card, remember you can still be able to withdraw money you require through this facility.
