New UPI Transaction Limit: SBI, HDFC & other 105 banks (2022 Updated List)

UPI transaction limit is Rs 1 lakh per transaction. This limit has been set by NPCI, the RBI regulated entity that built UPI.

New UPI Transaction Limit Update in 2022: Limit Increased For IPO and RDS

Moreover, the UPI transaction limit for Initial Public Offering (IPO) and Retail Direct Scheme (RDS) is 5 lakhs, according to NPCI circular released on 9 December 2021.

However, it is important to note that on 24 September 2021, NPCI released a circular pushing for standardization of UPI transaction limit.

NPCI requested banks to follow the following standards:

UPI Transaction CategoryUPI Transaction TypeUPI Transaction Limit
P2P (Peer to Peer)/P2PM (Peer to Peer Merchant)
Collect Share Intent Link and Pay QR Share and PayINR 2000
P2M (Peer to Merchant) Non-Verified OfflineCollect Share Intent Link and Pay QR Share and PayINR 2000
P2P/P2PMPay1 Lakhs
P2MAll1 Lakhs
P2M (Verified Specific Categories)**All2 Lakhs

*P2PM  refers to the category catering to small merchants and the unorganized retail sector.

**Specific Category refers to merchants added to ‘verified merchants’ list by Acquiring Banks.

It also includes specific business categories like capital market, collection, insurance, preapproved disbursment and FIR.

While RBI is pushing for standardization of the UPI transaction limit, it is not yet put into practice by most banks. This is the reason why you might see varied UPI limits from one bank to another.

UPI transaction limit can be categorized as

  1. UPI transaction amount limits i.e the maximum amount of money that can be transferred via UPI.
  2. Frequency i.e number of UPI transactions a person can do in a day.

UPI Transaction Limit Per Day

The UPI transaction limit per day has been defined by each bank in the UPI network and varies bank to bank. For example in SBI UPI transaction limit per day is Rs 1,00,000, while in Bank of Baroda UPI transaction limit is Rs 50,000.

UPI Transaction Limit Per Week

Some banks have also defined UPI transaction limit by week. For example, IDFC UPI transaction limit per month is Rs 30,00,000.

UPI Transaction Limit Per Month

Limited public sector banks and recognized private banks have imposed a monthly UPI transaction limit. For example, IDFC bank’s upi transaction limit per week is Rs 7,00,000, while SBI has not set any limit.

Now, until all banks adhere to the standard UPI limit set by RBI, most banks will have varying UPI transaction limits. Here is the UPI limit of major banks in India.

  1. It’s so good to transfer money 100000 per day but if i make payment in any emergency time than payment excited more than one lakh . How can perform that.

    1. Hi Ajay, yes, it is a valid concern. For any emergency situation, it is advisable that a user has more than one bank account. If you are using a particular UPI app, link all bank accounts with the UPI ID and switch to different accounts while paying. This way you shall be able to do transactions above the threshold limit.
