Indian smartphone maker Lava is also jumping on the mobile payment service bandwagon. Called Lava Pay, the service is unique because it does not rely on internet to enable mobile payments. Lava International Limited claims that the app comes with the highest security standards. The real deal here is that the new service enables feature phone users to make payments using Unified Payments Interface. The service has the potential to simplify payments for millions of feature phone users in the country. Also Read - UPI remained the most preferred mode of payment in terms of volume in 2019: Report

In the next screen, they need to enter the amount they wish to pay and then four digit UPI code. Once the transaction is complete, both the sender and the receiver will receive an alert immediately. “India has roughly 500 million feature phone users, however, most of these users still do offline financial transaction for lack of internet connectivity on their phones. Lava Pay is the first solution for digital financial transactions without the requirement of internet connectivity,” said Tejinder Singh, Head-Product, Lava International.
