This article will help you to learn how to pay or send money digitally to someone without an active internet connection using UPI. It is very helpful to you when there is a situation where you come across poor internet connectivity or you’re only getting 2G signal, which is not enough to carry out UPI transactions.
Many of us do not know that we can use the UPI facility in offline mode by using *99# USSD code on our phone’s dialer. The biggest advantage of UPI offline mode is that it supports all mobiles, whether it is a smartphone, feature phone or an ordinary phone.
Currently, *99# offers the following financial and non-financial mobile banking services to its users:
- Send money using mobile number, bank account number or UPI ID
- Check your bank account balance and mini statement (Transactions)
- Create or change your UPI PIN
- Request money
- Approve UPI pending request
Before using this service, make sure that your mobile number is linked to your bank account. If you haven’t yet registered your bank account for *99# USSD, you can also do this part using the USSD code.
1. To send or transfer money, open your phone’s dialer and type *99# from your registered mobile number.
2. Next you will see various options for sending money, simply type number 1 and hit send.
3. Now you have to choose the desired option to send money. You can enter 1 for the mobile number, 3 for the UPI ID, 4 for the saved beneficiary and 5 for IFSC and A/C No.
4. Finally, enter the desired amount you want to send and type in your UPI PIN.
After completing the last step, you’ll receive a confirmation message of your successful money transfer.
