The central bank had proposed to expand the scope of Unified Payments Interface (UPI) in April. Under this, it was said to approve transfer/to transfer from loan facility already approved in banks.

At present, Savings Account, Overdraft Accounts, Prepaid Wallets and Credit Cards can be linked to UPI.
