RuPay Global

At NPCI we wish to empower every Indian citizen with a world class modern and safe payment solution. With that goal driving our actions, it led us to launch the RuPay Global Card.

To prove our commitment and bring the best to our customers, we’ve been associated with an international partner - Discover Financial Services, since March 2012. The global alliance has led us to offer a card that is backed by state-of-the-art technology that is secure, robust, scalable, simple and cost-effective. Our initiative has opened doors and marked our entry into the Indian sector of premium cards.

By way of this prestigious association, we offer our 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 over 2 lakh ATMs that are operational under the NFS network and over 1.3 million PoS terminals across India.

In the efforts to offer continued convenience and quality customer service, we have strengthened our network capabilities by associating ourselves with trusted industry players such as JCB International Co. Ltd. and UnionPay International Co. Ltd.

We currently issue the RuPay Global Card in two exhaustive variants - RuPay Global Classic Debit Card and RuPay Global Platinum Debit Card. Both these variants are accepted with not just Discover, Diners Club and Pulse, but also at over 40.1 million POS locations and over 1.88 million ATM locations in 185 countries and territories worldwide!

Please move your mouse pointer on your travel region. You can use your RuPay Global card wherever you see the logos that appear:

The growing usage of smartphones and internet has led to the payments industry in India undergoing and experiencing a sharp surge in QR Code-based payment solutions. Banks and third-party technology providers have started providing their own variants of mobile wallets that users can download and use through their smartphones to make as well as receive payments.

This QR Code-based interface has initiated a new way for merchants and customers to exchange funds using mobile phones, making it a preferred channel to expedite and grow electronic payments. Merchants have used it to accept digital payments, as not all have the resources to mandate payments through POS card swipe EDC terminals.

In an attempt to encourage more and more people to use less cash and make digital payments instead, the RBI authorized a few card payment networks to implement an interoperable solution for such QR Code operated mechanisms. As a result, Visa, MasterCard and NPCI partnered to launch Bharat QR – a QR Code-based digital payment mechanism that merchant establishments, eCommerce and mCommerce websites are already using.

RuPay Contactless

Objectives of RuPay Contactless

The contactless payments landscape is in its nascence in India. NPCI could sense a huge undercurrent of excitement for contactless solutions especially in areas such as low value payments, hence, took appropriate steps. The objective of RuPay Contactless specification is the first of its kind in the country on many counts.

  1. To provide a mechanism for including Low Value Payments (LVPs) within the gambit of electronic payments.
  2. To deliver a product that addresses the concerns of Indian customers taking into consideration the Indian Banks & Merchants.
  3. To motivate Indian customers to switch from cash to electronic payments.

RuPay Contactless Use Cases

RuPay Contactless offers the unique proposition of One Card for all Payments. This card can be used for transit payments (Bus, Metro, Cab etc.), toll, parking, small value offline retail payments as well as normal day to day retail payments.

Key features are as mentioned below:

Security

Cost of providing contactless card to the customer

RBI has mandated that effective Feb 01, 2016, all cards issued by banks in India would be EMV. Therefore, cost of providing contactless card to the customer will be only marginal as against steep increase in territories where mag-stripe ecosystem exists.

Synergy with existing technology

RuPay Contactless specifications can co-exist with the existing technology being used by acquirer/operator and migration to common standards may be achieved gradually to suit the convenience of PTO.

RuPay Contactless as NCMC specifications

NPCI is working with Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD), Government of India for implementation of National Common Mobility Card (NCMC) program across the country with the vision of ‘One Card for all Payments (Transit as well as Retail)’. This program envisages the development of a cashless fare payment mechanism, which will work across all the public transport systems in the country such as metros, buses, cabs etc.; leading to establishment of an Interoperable Fare Management System (IFMS).

This would provide seamless connectivity to passengers across all transit systems in the country bringing convenience and ease of payment for them. Moreover, this card can be used for day to day retail payments as well. This will also lead to huge economies of scale for the Acquirer/Operators due to removal of duplicity of efforts as well as standardization across issuance, acceptance, networking interfaces, clearing, settlement and dispute management systems.

RuPay Contactless specification creates the synergy with the vision of MoUD and offers the solution for NCMC program.
