Uber, a global cab aggregator, recently added Unified Payment interface (UPI) as a payment option in India. UPI is a unique technology developed by National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) which allows users to transact from and between multiple bank accounts using one unified platform.

Uber teamed up with Axis bank and HDFC bank to give UPI payment option to riders in its cab hailing application.  Now a Uber rider will be able to pay for Uber ride via UPI or cash, Paytm, debit card and credit card options.
