Under this facility, an agreement is formed between the consumer and the merchant bodies and a certain amount of the outstanding amount is paid automatically on the fixed date of the month. Till now this facility was available on payment through debit card, credit card, prepaid payment instrument and wallet.
The Reserve Bank said in a notification issued on Friday that now the facility of recurring payment will also be available for UPI. The Reserve Bank said that e-mandate is approved to make the recurring payment secure through UPI. E-mandate is called to consent to the process of payment by means of message or e-mail, etc., without the presence of consumers in front of the merchant while making the payment.
