New Auto debit Rule from 1st October

New Auto debit transaction Rule from 1st October

From 1st October, the auto-payment rule is likely to change. The (RBI) Reserve Bank of India earlier stated that recurring transactions using Unified Payments Interface (UPI), credit cards, debit cards, or other prepaid payment instruments (PPIs) would need additional factor authentication (AFA). Many credit and debit card users set auto-payment instructions for several services ranging from gas and electricity to movie and music subscriptions, and new rules alarm to confuse the millions of users.

Banks have already started notifying their customers about new transaction rules.

"As per RBI's recurring payment rule, w.e.f. 20-09-21, Standing Instruction on your Bank Card(s) for recurring transaction will not be honoured. You can pay the user directly using your card for uninterrupted service,"

In December, the RBI allowed more time to migrate to the new framework by 31st March, following a request from (IBA) the Indian Banks' Association, later pushing to 1st October this year.

RBI said.

"Any further delay in to make sure to complete keep the framework beyond the extended timeline will attract strict supervisory action now,"

"As per RBI guidelines and rule on 'Processing of e-mandate on cards for recurring transaction', will be effective from 1st October 2021, existing and new Standing Instructions which (were/are) register without additional factor of confirmation, will not be processed. We shall be execute the solution at the earliest,"
