1. Cheques and Demand Drafts
A cheque is one of the safest and oldest methods of cashless payment. A cheque is issued to a person or business for a specific amount. This cheque is deposited in the receiver’s bank, and the money is received through a payment processed by a clearinghouse. A demand draft is safer than a cheque because it cannot be defaulted or dishonoured, unlike a cheque.

UPI is very fast. It transfers money instantly. The UPI works 24 x 7. There is no restriction.The NEFT can take up to 12 hours for the fund transfer. But UPI is as fast as IMPS.

To transfer Fund through the IMPS and NEFT you have to go through the registration of new payee. Although UPI also requires this step, but you have not to wait after the registration. There are at least 30-minutes waiting period for the NEFT and IMPS registration. But UPI is instantly available.
