Amidst the buzz that people might be levied charges over digital money transactions via UPI, the Indian Ministry of Finance clarified that no such provision is under the consideration process.

"UPI is a digital public good with immense convenience for the public and productivity gains for the economy. There is no consideration in Govt to levy any charges for UPI services. The concerns of the service providers for cost recovery have to be met through other means," Ministry of Finance tweeted.

However, since people were hinted of extra charges earlier, they began to roll out memes on social media - only to gradually settle after the government's clarification. #UPICharges was seen trending for hours long on the microblogging website.
