Western Union became the first company to offer cross border money transfer via Unified Payments Interface, a real-time payment system developed by the National Payments Corporation of India under Reserve Bank of India guidelines. This way, Western Union allows its customers globally to send money into bank accounts in India by using the receivers UPI ID, instead of providing bank account and routing details.

Western Union already has a strong brand and presence in India. By implementing new digital outbound payment options, we are empowering the rising middle class in India to create a borderless world through the ease of digital global money movement and enable economic opportunity globally
