RBI Decision: Credit cards and debit cards have become a part of people’s lives. The number of users is also increasing day by day. Besides, cases of fraud are also increasing. To make debit-credit card transactions secure, the Reserve Bank of India has introduced new facilities by changing some rules (Debit Credit Card Rules). RBI has launched a new channel for Card On Tokenisation after the MPC meeting.
What will be the benefits?
Debit and credit card users will benefit from this decision of the Central Bank. They will be provided more security than before. Cardholders will also be able to directly link their accounts to different e-commerce platforms.
