Even Immediate Payment System (IMPS), a bank account-based fund transfer mechanism, dropped to 122 million transactions against more than 216 million in March, a fall of 43.5%.

    The National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) on May 1 released the transaction data through its social media channels. The National Electronic Toll Collection (NETC) that uses FAS Tag, which allows customers to pay automated toll payments on national highways and some state highways, saw a huge fall of almost 90% to 10 million compared to more than 84 million in March. Around 110 million transactions were carried out in February.
