In a groundbreaking move, Hitachi Payment Services, in collaboration with the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), has introduced India’s first-ever UPI ATM. This innovative white-label ATM (WLA) has garnered widespread attention, especially after a video went viral showcasing a cardless cash withdrawal through the UPI-ATM. This cutting-edge technology offers secure and convenient cash withdrawals without the need for physical cards. Let’s delve into the details of this revolutionary UPI-ATM and how it works.

UPI-ATM: A Step-By-Step Guide

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to use the UPI-ATM for cardless cash withdrawals:

Step Action
1 On the UPI-ATM screen, click on ‘UPI Cardless Cash.’
2 Choose from several fast cash options displayed, including 100, 500, 1,000, 2,000, and 5,000 as per your need.
3 A QR code will appear on the screen. Open your UPI app, such as GPay, PhonePe, or any other UPI app, and scan the code. Approve the payment.
