Even if you want to purchase then try to pay via UPI only if you want to. Report said that NPCI is working on this process and they said that the feature is going to introduce within six months and they said they are looking to introduce first on the United Arab Emirates and Singapore.

A senior banker said, “These two countries already have opened up to RuPay cards, now the target is to enable UPI Payments. This will be a big boost for Indian travellers for those countries and just like their debit card or credit card, they can pay via UPI.” Now NPCI’s only role is just to create a global payment product that simply expands the use case of UPI.
