“NPCI has cleared Mi Pay for large group usage, due to which its beta testing is going live, and soon it will be available for all MIUI users. At launch, Mi Pay will support all leading credit cards and debit cards,” the company noted in a statement.

Xiaomi has teamed up with ICICI Bank and PayU to launch the payment service in the country. It is currently inviting beta testers for the platform.

Mi Pay will enable users to pay through credit and debit cards, internet banking, as well as through UPI.
