Soon you will not be able to make UPI payments through third-party apps like Google Pay, PhonePe, and PayTM. National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) has directed banks and third-party apps to stop UPI service for accounts that have not been active for more than a year. This means that if you have not used UPI for transactions for more than a year, your UPI
account will be frozen and you will not be able to use it. This will happen from 31 December 2023. By guaranteeing that only those UPI IDs that are used regularly will remain active. The use of UPI ID and carry forward of active accounts is being done for safety.


NPCI has said that it hopes that this action will increase the security of UPI transactions. Apart from this, many wrong transactions can be stopped. As per the instructions issued by NPCI, all applications and banks will henceforth validate the UPI ID and linked mobile number of inactive customers. UPI ID will be closed if there is neither credit nor debit in a year.


This action is being taken because NPCI has received many complaints of wrong transactions. People often change their mobile number but forget to update the UPI ID that comes with it, which is one of the major reasons for this. This number has been given to someone else and UPI is still active there. This will ensure that only the person whose number is getting the money. Many such cases have come to light due to which NPCI is now taking this step.
