Card Tokenisation

All consumers' online debit and credit card transaction rules will change beginning from October 1. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has directed all operational banks to develop tokens for card details in an effort to make all electronic payments safe, secure, simple, quick, and economical.

Credit card tokenization is a mechanism where all the private information of the customer is replaced with a one-time alphanumeric ID that is not related to the account owner and has no value. To safely access, receive, pass, and recover consumer credit card information, a randomly generated token is used.

According to RBI, "Tokenisation refers to replacement of actual card details with an alternate code called the "token", which shall be unique for a combination of card, token requestor (i.e. the entity which accepts request from the customer for tokenisation of a card and passes it on to the card network to issue a corresponding token) and device (referred hereafter as "identified device")."

Beginning September 30, 2022, all credit and debit card information used for online, in-person, and in-app transactions must be replaced with tokens under the new regulation.
