D) Instrument
E) Invalid
Answer: D) Instrument

  • “This novel method shall be examined, and issuance of appropriate guidelines on payments involving BNPL shall be explored,” the central bank in its Payments Vision 2025 document.
  • The RBI had last week communicated to non-bank PPI issuers — or BNPL companies — to stop issuing cards where the funds are loaded through a credit line from NBFCs, sending jitters in the segment.
  • According to banking observers, the Reserve Bank is not happy with fintech companies using PPIs as a credit instrument, circumventing the regulatory oversight.
  • The banking regulator is in discussion with fintech players to find a way out and bring the segment under a regulatory framework so that PPIs are used as a payment instrument and not as a credit avenue.
