who will benefit
Indian High Commissioner P Kumaran further said that the benefit of this new facility will be the most for the poor and middle class people who send a small amount every month to their family. Now they can transfer money in small pieces instead of transferring large amounts at once. Transferring money through UPI will also make people cheaper. Let us tell you that Singapore’s PayNow works like India’s domestic money transfer network RuPay. Along with this PayNow is also working on UPI technology with a group of other ASEAN countries. In such a situation, apart from Singapore, now it will also be easier to send money to India from countries like Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand.
Significantly, ASEAN is a group of 10 countries like Brunei, Cambodia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar and Vietnam. In such a situation, after the partnership between UPI and PayNow, now India’s UPI system will be valid in these 10 countries as well. In such a situation, it will be very convenient for Indians working abroad who send money to their families every year.
