PM Modi launched Aadhar based Mobile payment App BHIM for digital transactions


Today at the Digi Dhan Mela, PM Narendra Modi launched the Aadhar based mobile payment application called BHIM (Bharat Interface for Money). This is a redesigned version of UPI (Unified Payment Interface). This app is used to make payments through digital transactions. This is Modi’s initiative since the demonetisation act.  

This app is available for Android versions, through this app users can pay and receive money with no processing fee. This app doesn’t require Internet Connectivity. A user is provided authentication by their thumb. This app can also be accessed using USSD from any phone including feature phones using USSD code *99#.

Here is the list of 30 Banks which support UPI (Unified Payment Interface):

Allahabad Bank
Andhra Bank
Axis Bank
Bank of Baroda
Bank of Maharashtra

DCB Bank
Dena Bank

How does it Work 

You have to register your bank account with BHIM, and set a UPI PIN for the bank account. Your mobile number is your payment address (PA), and you can simply start transacting. 

You can send, receive from friends, family and customers through a mobile number or payment address. Money can also be sent to non UPI supported banks using IFSC and MMID. You can also collect money by sending a request and reverse payments if required.
