ICICI vs PhonePe, and the Future of UPI

The Unified Payments Interface (UPI) is being hailed as the next big thing for online payments in India. However a great many hurdles are to be cleared before it can be widely used across India. Payments expert Gopal Sathe joins host Pranay Parab to discuss these issues. We start by discussing the ICICI versus PhonePe issue, where the bank has blocked payments from the UPI app.

We then move on to talk about UPI as a whole and what it needs to challenge wallet apps such as Paytm and Mobikwik.
