Card tokenisation to kick in from 1st October, laggards are there: RBI
IANS 30 September 2022
The tokenisation of debit/credit card details will happen from October 1 onwards even though there may be laggards unwilling to comply with the regulations, said a senior official of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI).
 
According to RBI Deputy Governor T. Rabi Shankar, a total of 35 crore tokens have been created and the system is ready to be rolled out.
 
He also said in September, 40 per cent of the online card transactions valued at about Rs 63 crore has been tokenised.
 
Shankar said few participants may not be ready due to their unwillingness to comply with the regulations and they might take some more time.
 
Tokenisation means the details of debit/credit cards such as 16-digit number, names, expiry dates and codes which one used to save earlier for future payments will now be replaced by a token.
 
The token is used by the merchant's website for the transaction.
