Non-banks can't load credit lines on prepaid payment instruments, says RBI

Yeah me too.
They are the best of BNPL:
mode of payment: card as well as Scan and Pay unlike card only from other BNPLs
Billing Cycle: 1 month instead of 15 days
Rewards: 1-5% cashback
Not restricting users from adding money in Paytm wallet or anything of the sort unlike Slice.
Once I tried to pay for my Brother’s PAN card fee using Slice and it failed citing merchant category not allowed and I used Lazypay card and it swiftly passed through.
So Lazypay is the king ,the best of the BNPL , so I too would certainly miss it if it has to go.

Currently this guidelines are uncler even this fintech company’s are quiet confused…but as we Currently understand the regulator said that PPI could not load via creditline exception for those who has Regulated with direct with RBI in that case a ppi and lender both regulate with rbi. And non bank lender not perform i that actinon (non bank menas NBFC)
LAZYPAY HAS CURRENTLY WORKING FINE AFTER some terms chages…but the works not completed yet they required some more changes…
Open for any correction or upgarde my knowledge…

Holy crap. Does that mean we no longer have to pay whatever dues we had before? :sweat_smile:

I can’t login too.

I was able to login 3-4 mins back.
Sometimes app does that…

Received the same notification :arrow_down_small:


But on clicking it nothing happened.
I can still login in the app though,

Will trying doing a transaction to see if I can still continue.
Btw was trying to book a train ticket on Amazon using Slice Card but the transaction failed( 1st ever on Amazon through Slice Card).
I think they are blocking transactions in accordance with RBI guidelines just as Jupiter did.

Although this🔽

Details that Slice and many others haven’t still stopped loading credit line into PPI instruments.

We don’t have risk appetite to be non compliant with RBI directives.

As explained in this report :arrow_down_small:

there are 10 million credit linked prepaid cards amounting to a whopping ₹ 3500 crore transactions in just may 2022.
This RBI step isn’t at all inclusive although RBI and GOI keep ranting about it because not every bank can afford giving credit card to every customer and thus for customers in non working class like us students, these BNPLs are a boon.
