RBI Directions for Microfinance Loans, 2022

The Reserve Bank of India has instructed all the regular entities lending to the microfinance sector to ensure that the loans are collateral-free and not protected by a lien on the borrower’s deposit account. 

Tune into the #LawWiser premium video on “RBI Directions for Microfinance Loans, 2022” featuring Prabhjot Singh briefly explaining the directions given by RBI.

In the video, Prabhjot tells us that the Reserve Bank of India has eliminated the margin caps that were previously solely applicable to non-banking finance businesses. 

The collateral loans offered to low-income households, i.e., households with an annual income up to $3 lakh, will now be termed “microfinance loans”. 

He shares that there must be a RE board-approved policy that brings flexibility to the payback period.

Interest rates on all three levels, i.e., minimum, maximum, and average on the microfinance loans must be informed in all RE offices.

RE or its agent will not utilize punitive recovery measures. 

To learn more about these RBI directions, watch the full video.

Proposed tokenisation of cards by the RBI

Watch now #LawWiser premium video on “Proposed Tokenisation of Cards by the RBI” featuring Gaurav Bhalla, Partner at Ahlawat and Associates sharing useful insights on RBI card tokenisation.

Gaurav explains the background, how tokenisation works, types of tokenisation, applicability, effects and much more in this video. He shares that tokenisation of debit and credit cards allows the generation of a ‘token’ number or an ‘alternate code’ to replace the 16-digit card number entered by the customer. Each token will be unique to the requestor, the user’s card, and the device with which the card is registered. The token request is made by the merchant of the online platform (on behalf of the card-holder or card owner) to a card network (eg – Visa; Mastercard and others) which will then issue a token.

There are different types of tokenisation available like 

(i) Format preserving tokens – These tokens replace the 16-digit numbers on a card with an altogether different set of 16-digit numbers.

(ii) Non-format preserving tokens – This system does not follow the 16-digit number format; and. replaces the original 16-digit card number with alphanumeric characters. Entities such as Razorpay uses non-format preserving tokens.

The system of tokenisation has been introduced by the RBI and is only applicable to domestic transactions. Tokenisation is used only for online transactions and is specific to a merchant.

The Reserve Bank of India issued a notification dated January 8, 2019, titled ‘Tokenisation –

Card transactions wherein it was announced that card networks for tokenisation in card transactions for a specific use case. This announcement extended to all uses cases/channels [e.g., Near Field Communication (NFC) / Magnetic Secure Transmission (MST) based contactless transactions, in-app payments, QR code-based payments, etc.] or token storage mechanisms (cloud, secure element, trusted execution environment, etc.). However, at that point, this facility is offered only through mobile phones/tablets.
