Exploring The Features Of The BHIM App

India is advancing and progressing rapidly but there are still lot of things to do and achieve. Some of the issues that still remain to be tackled include black money and corruption. In order to combat these problems of the society, India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi has unveiled the BHIM app. Inspired by BHIM's character of strength and power in the Indian religious scripture of Mahabharata, Modi believes that the BHIM app possesses similar powers to uproot black money and corruption from the Indian society.

BHIM indicates Bharat Interface for Money. Bharat Interface for Money (BHIM) is a UPI dependent transaction solution for the Indians after demonization and the BHIM app helps users to transfer or even get payment through digital means.

The BHIM app certainly changes the way we make and do transactions. Certain ways in which BHIM has simplified the user experience of making transactions include sending and receiving money with just one tap. You don’t have to insert long information such as your bank account number and stuff like that to complete your transactions each time. All such details need to be entered only once when you are setting up your bank account with the BHIM app. 

Moreover it will also let you do other things like to exchange information with other UPI apps and bank accounts. This app is available for Indians only. The main purpose of creating this app is to minimise the use of cash in the Indian society, which in turn will help in minimising the hoardings of paper money and thus minimise the presence of black money in the society. This app is named after Dr. Bhim Rao Ambedkar, who had sacrificed his whole life for Dalits and the poor and is still remembered for his credible works. 

We have noticed that some people have been facing problems in getting started with using BHIM. Some people have been struggling with the part of setting up the UPI address. Follow these steps to setup your UPI address:

  1. Register your bank account with the BHIM app.
