RBI set rules on Digital Payments
The central bank has set a framework on Digital Payments to strengthen India’s digital payments architecture. It will enhance security, control, and compliance among banks, gateways, wallet operators, and non-bank entities that are the vanguard of helping New Delhi achieve its goal of a ‘less-cash’ transaction economy. The new rules come at a time when India’s flourishing payments ecosystem has seen increased instances of outages, frauds, and cyber-breaches. This new framework will abide by all regulated entities to standardize their security operations within 6 months to ensure compliance. The guidelines shall create an enhanced and enabling environment for customers to use digital platforms in a more safe and secure manner. It includes mandates from source code protection of third-party UPI apps, Cybersecurity guidelines for safety against external attacks, internet banking, and Card Payments. Recently Finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman had proposed Rs.1500 crore-scheme to promote digital payment.
These rules will have implications for not only regulated banks but also third-party payment
applications like Whats App Pay, Google pay, Phone-pay, etc., On how they interacting with their banking partners and store customer data.
