IMPS stands as a pioneer in India’s push for digital payments, offering users a secure and efficient way to conduct interbank transactions and manage their finances through their mobile phones.

IMPS supports various types of transactions, including person-to-person transfers, bill payments, and even online shopping. The system operates 24/7, enabling users to transfer funds in real-time, regardless of the time of day or the day of the week.
