Exp. RBI sets deadline for card tokenization to October 1

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has released guidelines to ease the transition to new norms on card-on-file (CoF) tokenization and licensing of payment aggregators (PAs) in two separate notifications.

While reiterating that with effect from October 1, no entity in the card transaction chain, other than card issuers and card networks, shall store CoF data, the central bank notified two interim measures.

Other than the card issuer and the card network, the merchant or its PA involved in settlement can save the CoF data for a maximum period of four days after the transaction date or till the settlement date, whichever is earlier. This data shall be used only for settlement of such transactions, and must be purged thereafter.

For handling other post-transaction activities, acquiring banks can continue to store CoF data until January 31, 2023.

On guidelines for PAs and payment gateways, the RBI took note of the disruption caused by the pandemic and allowed a fresh window for all PAs existing as on March 17, 2020 to apply for authorization. They will now be allowed to apply by September 30, 2022 and shall have a net worth of Rs 15 crore as on March 31, 2022.

They will also be permitted to continue their operations till they receive communication from the RBI regarding the fate of their application. The timeline of 31 March 2023 for achieving a net worth of Rs 25 crore will remain.
