If you are getting the UPI Limit Exceeded error while making any transaction in the Google Pay (Gpay) app then this error means that you have reached some UPI limits on your account.

To deal with fraud and for better security National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) has put some transaction restrictions, in simple words there are some daily and monthly transaction limits, and once you meet your transaction limit you may get the UPI Limit Exceeded error.

  • Limit of the maximum amount per transaction.
