No more OTP requirement for online payments up to Rs 2,000!

(Last Updated On: August 28, 2019)
The Reserve Bank of India has eased rules that require a two-step authentication process while making online payments up to ₹2,000 for cardholders. 

So now, if you have to make an online payment up to Rs 2,000, you won’t need to go through the process of One-Time Passwords ( OTP ) thereby saving time and effort.
In this model, the card issuing banks will offer the “payment authentication solutions” of the respective card networks to their customers on an optional basis. Customers opting for this facility will go through a one-time registration process requiring entry of card details, etc. by the issuing bank. 
Thereafter, the registered customers will not be required to re-enter the card details for every transaction at merchant locations that offer this solution.
