Merchantrade Asia and NPCI International come together to offer real-time remittances to India through the UPI Platform
Mumbai: Merchantrade Asia has partnered with NPCI International – a wholly-owned subsidiary of National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) to offer Real-Time Remittances to India. This partnership will enable Merchantrade and its Network to connect to NIPL and facilitate remittance to Beneficiary Banks in India via UPI IDs.

The solution will assist with Beneficiary name matching and facilitate all the requisite compliance checks in a safe, secure, and convenient manner.
Ritesh Shukla, Chief Executive Officer, NIPL said, “India, today is a top market for inward remittance globally, receiving around US$ 83 Billion per annum remitted by over 30 Million expats and PIO overseas. We at NIPL are focused on bringing about the superior cross-border experience through our cutting-edge real-time payment solution – UPI.
