Recently, the RuPay credit card was launched by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) on the Unified Payments Interface (UPI) facility. This linkage enables the customers of several banks to use their credit cards for payments by scanning QR codes without carrying their cards with them anywhere all the time.
However, at the present time, this facility is available in some selected banks only, wherein only the RuPay credit card users can make use of it. However, a Visa or MasterCard credit card user is not allowed to use this facility for UPI payments so far.
In the recent past, UPI payments were allowed to link with Debit Cards only. But nowadays things are changing. Now, the UPI apps, such as GPay, PhonePe, and Paytm, will enable bank customers to add both their credit and debit cards to their UPI accounts. It means that just like a Debit Card, one can also add a Credit Card and make UPI payments. But there is a slight difference between the two: by linking the RuPay credit cards with UPI, the cardholders can avail of the short-term credit facility rather than spending funds from their savings account as in the case of the Debit Cards.
