Digital transactions of up to Rs 2K to get refunds 16.12.2017 DNA: Top News
To drive adoption of digital payments across the country, the government will reimburse merchant discount rate (MDR) applicable on digital transactions of up to Rs 2,000 for the next two years. This will be applicable on transactions carried out using debit cards, UPI BHIM application, or Aadhaar. MDR is payable by the merchant to the bank when a payment is made at a merchant point of sale. This decision was approved by the Cabinet on Friday. The move is expected to cost Rs 2,500 crore to the exchequer and will be applicable from January 1, 2018. "The government has taken a major decision that to accelerate digital payments in the country, the MDR charges in transactions up to Rs 2,000 shall be reimbursed by the government to banks," Electronics and IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said. "Citing MDR, many people make cash payments inspite of having debit cards. Similarly, MDR is charged on payments made to merchants through BHIM UPI platform and AePS," he said. For all transactions less than Rs 2,000 in ...

The deadline to link one's Aadhaar for all services including bank accounts and mobile phones has been extended till March 31, 2018, the Supreme Court ordered on Friday.

The government will bear the MDR charges on transactions up to Rs 2,000 made through debit cards, BHIM UPI or Aadhaar-enabled payment systems to promote digital transactions, IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said on Friday.  The merchant discount rate (MDR) will be borne by the government for two years with effect from January 1, 2018 by reimbursing the same to the banks. The move will have an impact of Rs 2,512 crore on the exchequer. The decision was taken at the Cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Prasad said. "For all the transactions less than Rs 2,000 in value, the consumer and the merchant will not suffer any additional burden in the form of MDR," the minister said, adding this will lead to greater adoption of digital payment modes for such transactions. The minister said since such transactions account for seizable percentage of transaction volume, the decision will help move towards less-cash economy. When payment is made at a merchant point of sale, MDR is payable by the ...
