Sarvatra TechnologiesSarvatra Technologies Ltd announced its collaboration with ICICI Bank, IDFC First Bank and Pine Labs Private Limited, to facilitate all inbound travellers visiting India to make local payments using Unified Payments Interface (UPI) while they are in India.

With this, Sarvatra Technologies becomes the first payment provider in India to enable three out of the four entities selected by RBI to launch the UPI payments facility for foreign travellers.

ICICI Bank, IDFC First Bank and Pine Labs Private Limited are being powered by Sarvatra Technologies to issue UPI-linked wallets to eligible travellers at select international airports (Bengaluru, Mumbai and New Delhi) and meeting venues. The collaboration will enable foreign visitors from G20 countries to make payments at over five crore merchant outlets across India, that accept QR Code-based UPI payments.

Speaking on the development, Mandar Agashe, Founder & MD, Sarvatra Technologies Ltd. said, “We are elated to serve our best technology to financial services entities in the country to enable UPI services for foreign delegates attending the G20 summit being held in India. This is in line with our commitment to embrace the vision of India to position UPI as a global payment’s enabler.

This collaboration has further strengthened Sarvatra’s leadership in the UPI ecosystem. UPI has already emerged as the country’s leading mode of payment. Now, it is an opportune time to showcase payments prowess of India to an international audience at a global event. The key decision makers from across the world can experience the UPI product by using it in-person. Further to our integration with ICICI Bank, IDFC First Bank, Pine labs, we are looking to further revolutionize the payments ecosystem.”

Upon completion of full KYC, UPI-linked wallets will be issued to the travellers coming to India. The customer would need to download the app of these entities. After downloading the app, they can sign in to use the INR-denominated UPI-linked wallets to pay at merchant and retail outlets via scanning of UPI QR codes. On departure, the balance can be encashed at the airport counters.
