  2. The company is hopeful of bringing more riders and drivers
  3. Uber has more around 2,85,000 active drivers in India
New Delhi: Riding on the 'go cashless' bandwagon, cab-hailing app Uber on August 23 launched a comprehensive Unified Payments Interface (UPI) integration in partnership with the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), Axis Bank and HDFC Bank. The company partnered Axis bank to launch UPI integration for riders and HDFC bank to facilitate access to BHIM for driver partners.

David Richter, Senior Vice-President of Global Business, Uber, added that the UPI integration will bring millions of riders and driver partners into the digital payments ecosystem, offering them another secure and seamless payment interface and bolster the nation's digital payment revolution.

India's digital payments economy alone will be bigger than $500 billion in the next five years. Integration of Uber app with UPI-BHIM will boost the digital economy of India, said Ravi Shankar Prasad, Union Minister for Information and Technology.


According to the company, through the steadfast adoption of BHIM over the next few weeks among its over 285,000 weekly active drivers, the move will additionally enable over 450,000 registered drivers on the Uber platform to experience the power of UPI.

Since nearly 60 per cent of app-based taxi drivers continue to make cash transactions, Uber's integration with BHIM/UPI will provide a positive stimulus to strengthen the adoption of digital payments, said Dilip Asbe, Chief Operating Officer, NPCI.

About The Campaign

NDTV in partnership with UBER is launching a sustained campaign 'Roshan Dilli'  to try and raise safety standards in India's capital, New Delhi.

Our focus is to try and improve lighting in public spaces in the city. Lighting is a key factor in shaping women's perceptions of safety

The initiative will provide a platform for all stakeholders to discuss our goal of improving safety standards, to start a conversation about safety of women in the country

It will also highlight various interventions and solutions that help to make women safe and put the spotlight on what more can be done.

The campaign will accentuate the need for Safety to be a shared responsibility

The need for gender sensitization and how law enforcement and civil society through checks and education can try and make women safer

We hope you will join us and help make New Delhi a safer city for women.
