What Do You Mean by IMPS Charges?

Immediate Payment Service, or IMPS, refers to the system operated by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) that allows the electronic transfer of funds in real-time. The service is available 24x7 and the transferred amount is credited instantly to the beneficiary account. As long as both your’s and the beneficiary’s bank are IMPS-enabled, you can use it for interbank transfer of funds. However, you may need to pay certain IMPS charges for availing the facility. These charges tend to vary from one bank to another.

What are the Types of IMPS Charges?

The IMPS fund transfer service attracts primarily two types of charges. These include:

  • IMPS Transaction Charge: This charge is levied against each transaction. It depends on the amount you transfer via IMPS. Usually, it ranges between ₹2.5 to ₹15 and varies from bank to bank.

  • IMPS GST Charge: This refers to the GST charges applicable on the IMPS transfer.

It is important to note that the IMPS charges are only applicable on outward transactions and not on inward IMPS transactions.
