More than 125 crores worth of UPI transactions were completed last year alone, data from the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) has revealed, an uptick from the last three years.

The Indian digital payments system also gained global acceptance, with Singapore, the UAE, Mauritius, Nepal and Bhutan being among the countries that have adopted UPI, the ministry said.

The data was revealed in response to a question raised by Rajya Sabha MP Kartikeya Sharma over the increasing cases of digital payments fraud in India.

The government has also come up with the national cybercrime reporting portal to register grievances, Karad added.
