Many users faced UPI transaction failures due to technical glitch in some banks


Many users claimed on Xx (formerly Twitter) that UPI transactions are not happening. In a tweet, the National Payments Corporation of India or NPCI confirmed that some banks have been hit by the outage, causing UPI transactions to fail.

“Sorry for the inconvenience on UPI connectivity as some banks are having some internal technical issues. NPCI systems are working fine and we are working with these banks to ensure prompt resolution.” NPCI wrote On X.

DownDetector, a website that tracks real-time disruption of services, has shown several banks including HDFC Bank, Bank of Baroda, SBI, Kotak and Bank of India affected by the outage. The outage tracker website also showed some problems with Google Pay services; However, the company clarified This sometimes happens due to heavy traffic on the bank servers.

At the time of writing this post, HDFC Bank confirmed in a tweet on X that the transaction was going on. However, the company acknowledged that the outage impacted services.

The Gadgets 360 team also tried using UPI payments using HDFC Bank, SBI and Kotak Bank accounts but faced issues. We hope that the technical glitch will be resolved in a few hours, as claimed by NPCI.
