Is Bhim App Not Working on Your Phone? Here is the Quick Fix
Prime Minister Narendra Modi made cashless transactions easier for the masses post demonitization by introducing a new digital payment app BHIM (Bharat Interface for Money) last week. If you don't know what this app is about and how to use it, then do check out our article on everything you need to know about the Bhim app.
With almost 3 million downloads under a week, the app is topping all the charts. However, no app is without faults, neither is the Bhim app. Here are some of the issues you may encounter and how to solve them.
It won't work in flight mode
So if you are trying the app on a phone without SIM card or in airplane mode, then the app won't work. So make sure you have a functioning mobile connection with the number that is tied to your bank accounts.
Device Binding Failed Error
This error occurs mostly if you are a dual sim user. To fix this error put the sim card which has the number connected to your bank account into sim slot 1. It can also happen if you have low RAM or low storage available. In that case close other running apps to free up the RAM, or delete unused apps and media to make storage space free.
Not receiving the OTP
If you didn't receive OTP for a transaction, it must be mostly because of the high loads on the servers- something you can't do anything about. Of course using the app at non-peak hours helps.
If you got an error saying ' Declined Transaction', then closing and reopening the app will fix it in most cases. However, make sure there is free RAM by closing the other apps running in the background.
You must be also aware that there is a cap on the amount you can transfer. There is a limit of Rs. 10,000 per transaction. Additionally, there is a cap of Rs. 20,000 per day.
