Visa, the global leader in digital payments, unveiled a comprehensive report detailing how tokenisation is driving India's digital economy. The report, "Enabling the Digital Shift: Tokenisation in India’s Economic Landscape", marks one year since the effective date of the RBI’s mandate on tokenisation for e-commerce transactions. 

Vasudevan P, Executive Director, RBI, while commenting on the report, said, “The Visa report provides valuable insights into the transformative role of tokenisation in India's digital payments landscape. As the country pushes towards a digital economy with an increasing volume of transactions, tokenisation has immense potential to further digitise the payment ecosystem. We appreciate the efforts of all ecosystem players, including Visa, in championing tokenisation and highlighting its benefits. With a substantial 560M tokens already in circulation and a fast-paced growth rate, we foresee tokenisation becoming a pivotal force in the evolution of digital payments."

Sandeep Ghosh, Group Country Manager for India & South Asia at Visa, commented, "The RBI’s visionary policies and supportive regulatory framework have positioned India as a global leader in digital payments. This has catalysed the rapid growth of digital payments and the seamless implementation of innovations like tokenisation. We, at Visa, are proud to have issued over 300M tokens in India, and by embracing innovations such as biometric authentication, contactless payments, and integrated commerce solutions, we aim to enhance customer experiences, reduce fraud, and drive the expansion of digital payments."

The report provides a comprehensive view of India’s tokenisation journey. 

Here are six digital payment trends that may simplify tokenisation in India

Simplified Payments: Tokenisation will make payments much easier including through voice assistants and smart devices that employ augmented and virtual reality.

Revolutionising Commerce: Issuing digital cards will be faster, subscription-based services simpler, and even change the retail experience with grab-and-go stores.

Faster Token Provisioning: Simplified ways of tokenisation will make the process of moving tokens (digital representation of card information) between the card issuer and destination wallets and website faster and easier

Frictionless Authentication: Tokenisation can be combined with biometric authentication (like fingerprint or facial recognition) to reduce card-related fraud.

Improved B2B Payments: Thanks to tokens, businesses can streamline reconciliation, issue unlimited virtual cards, and set transaction spending limits to mitigate risks

Contextual Commerce: By combining tokenisation with social media, users can enjoy a seamless shopping experience right within their favorite platforms.
