The National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) has mandated that all Unified Payments Interface (UPI)-based applications obtain consumers' prior authorization before recording their location or geographic coordinates. In a circular, NPCI stated that the provisions for the same must be offered without any refusal if the consumer has already given agreement to disclose the location originally while using the services.
