Upi Registration Without ATM Card

Punjab National Bank recently announced that its customers can activate the Unified Payments Interface (UPI) using Aadhaar-based one-time password (OTP) authentication

Earlier, to activate UPI, customers had to mandatorily use a valid debit card number for OTP authentication to set up a PIN while registering

This process was restricting access for many bank account holders who do not have a debit card handy.
