Bhubaneswar: National Payments Corporation of India’s Bharat Interface for Money (BHIM) App has crossed 16 million downloads and 4 million active customer base by end of June 2017. BHIM App is a common platform across the nation for making simple, easy and quick payments.
Mr. A. P. Hota, MD & CEO, NPCI said, “Transactions via BHIM App is witnessing growth with each passing month since its launch by Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi on December 30, 2016. Download numbers breaching 16 million mark is a remarkable achievement towards digital transactions and creating a less-cash society.”
Currently, the 1.3 version of the app is available on Google Play Store and Apple Store. Soon a new update (Version 1.4) of the app will be launched. BHIM referral scheme is also operational now, where the existing BHIM user (referrer) needs to encourage the new BHIM user (referee) to download the BHIM App and enter the referrer’s mobile number as the referral code. For both referrer and referee to get their incentive, the referee has to make minimum 3 unique transactions totalling to a minimum value of Rs. 50. On successful completion of the process, the referrer would get Rs.10 and the referee who does the payment would get Rs. 25.
