About payment system

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. Users can initiate IMPS transactions by logging into their mobile banking apps or using USSD codes provided by their banks.

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. The instant nature of IMPS transactions has significantly contributed to the transformation of the payment landscape in India.

IMPS’ significance is especially pronounced in regions with limited access to traditional banking services.

The system’s robust security measures, authentication protocols, and seamless integration with various banks showcase IMPS’ commitment to user trust and financial integrity. As India continues to advance its digital payments ecosystem, IMPS remains a driving force behind the nation’s journey toward financial inclusion, real-time transactions, and modernised payment processes.
