UDIR: A New Era of Dispute Resolution for UPI Transactions

, 05-Jul-2024

The rise of UPI payments in India has changed the way we pay. UPI’s speed and convenience have made it the go-to payment method for millions. As of January 2024, there are an estimated Rs.18-lakh crore transactions of UPI in India, processing a staggering number of transactions daily. But what happens if a transaction goes wrong? Until recently, resolving disputes in UPI could be a frustrating and time-consuming deal, often leaving users and businesses feeling helpless. 

UDIR: A Multi-Faceted Approach to Dispute Resolution

A new framework called Unified Dispute and Issue Resolution (UDIR) is curated to change the way dispute resolution works in the UPI ecosystem. Introduced by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), UDIR establishes a centralized, automated platform for handling disputes between users, banks, and merchants. This framework promises to streamline the process, minimize delays, and enhance transparency for all stakeholders. It tackles the challenge of dispute resolution from multiple angles, creating a win-win situation for users and businesses. 

1. Faster Resolution

UDIR uses automation to speed up the dispute resolution process, significantly reducing turnaround times. This results in quicker settlements and a more satisfying experience for everyone involved.

2. Real-Time Communication

UDIR breaks communication barriers by introducing real-time chat between users and banks. This ensures everyone stays informed throughout the process, resulting in less anxiety and more trust. 

3. Transparency at your Fingertips

UDIR has also introduced transparent dispute tracking. Users can now access their UPI app to track the progress of their dispute, gaining valuable insights into the process and building a sense of control.

4. Reduced Fraudulent Chargebacks

UDIR has employed strong mechanisms to prevent fraudulent chargebacks. By ensuring accurate refund tracking, UDIR safeguards businesses from being exploited by users filing illegitimate claims.
