Commenting on the partnership, Akash Sinha, CEO & Co-Founder, of Cashfree Payments said, “We are glad to partner with NPCI to enable tokenization for RuPay cards and empower our merchants with a secure and compliance-friendly payments inflow system. At Cashfree Payments, it is our focus to build innovative and effective solutions, to help provide a simpler, safe, and seamless experience to our merchants.

Speaking on the development, Gaurish Korgaonkar, Head- Of fintech Solutions, NPCI said, “This partnership with Cashfree payments to provide tokenization solutions on RuPay cards will enable cardholders to enjoy a seamless payment experience backed by best-in-class security. We believe that this is yet another step towards further strengthening the overall digital payments environment with increased safety and security. We are confident that this initiative will help various merchants in the digital ecosystem meet the RBI deadline.”

As per RBI guidelines, with effect from 1st July 2022, neither businesses nor payment aggregators can save customer card details on their platforms. The card details can only be saved by the card networks or issuing banks.

Card tokenization is the process of replacing sensitive card information like card number, and card expiry with a cryptographically generated random string referred to as the card token.

Once a card is tokenized, the generated card token can be used for processing payments as a substitute for card details, thus eliminating the risk of loss of sensitive card information while making card payments.
