What is in the new version?

With UPI 2.0, one can link their overdraft account and a digital channel will be available for the same. Once the overdraft account is linked with the UPI, the monetary transactions will be fast and easy.

In this new version, a feature has been added but only for the verified merchants. This feature states that if you make a payment through UPI 2.0, it will generate a link which will have the invoice copy of the payment. The invoice would be helpful for the customers to verify the details related to the payment made.
