RBI releases ‘Vision 2021’ for payment systems for ‘cash-lite’ society

Thursday, 16 May 2019 | PTI | Mumbai

Aiming at a ‘cash-lite’ society, the Reserve Bank of India Wednesday released a vision document for ensuring a safe, secure, convenient, quick and affordable e-payment system as it expects the number of digital transactions to increase more than four times to 8,707 crore in December 2021.

The ‘Payment and Settlement Systems in India: Vision 2019 - 2021’, with its core theme of ‘Empowering Exceptional (E)payment Experience’, envisages to achieve “a highly digital and cash-lite society” through the goal posts of competition, cost effectiveness, convenience and confidence (4Cs).

The RBI said the payment systems landscape will continue to change with further innovation and entry of more players which is expected to ensure optimal cost to the customers and freer access to multiple payment system options.

“The Reserve Bank of India will implement the approach outlined in this Vision during the period 2019 - 2021,” it said.
