RuPay aims to empower every Indian citizen with a world class modern and safe payment
In March 2012, RuPay went global by tying up with Discover Financial Services, to bring international services to Indians.
The international card is backed by state-of-the-art technology that is secure, robust,
scalable, simple and cost-effective. The initiative has opened doors and marked RuPay’s
entry into the Indian sector of premium cards. By way of this prestigious association, RuPay
offers its customers, great value as Discover brings along a global acceptance footprint. It is a mutually beneficial agreement as Discover and Diners Card holders also enjoy the convenience of availing services of all ATMs that are operational under the NFS network and PoS terminals across India.
In the efforts to offer continued convenience and quality customer service, RuPay has
strengthened its network capabilities by launching RuPay JCB Global Card in association with
JCB International Co. Ltd. in July 2019. The RuPay JCB Global card can be used at RuPay card
accepting points in India and JCB card accepting points outside India for PoS, E-Commerce
and ATM. This is the first ever JCB brand card issued in India.
At present, all three card variants - Classic, Platinum and Select are available under RuPay Global and are accepted at over 42.4 million POS locations and over 1.90 million ATM locations in +185 countries and territories worldwide.
