BHIM, the UPI-based payments app, has crossed 3 million downloads on Google Play Store. The app was launched just five days back, and its iOS version is launching within the next 10 days. In a tweet, NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant confirmed the arrival of the app on iOS, along with its Android download numbers.
The BHIM app is also set to include multilingual support soon, with more vernacular languages. The app currently supports Hindi and English, and with more languages integrated, it can reach out to a wider audience in our nation.
BHIM, which stands for BHarat Interface for Money, is already the top app on Google Play's free apps chart. It was announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his address to the nation. BHIM has been developed by the National Payments Corporation of India (NCPI), and is aimed to help the nation manoeuvre towards a cashless economy.

With your mobile number as payment address, users can directly start transacting through the app. The app has a direct option to check bank balance, and maximum transaction limit of Rs 10,000 in one transaction, and Rs 20,000 within 24 hours.
