Now you will be able to make payments without internet, the government is focusing on offline transactions

New Delhi. After the wave of Digital India in India, the speed of online transactions has increased very fast, now in most places payment is done online and there is no tension of keeping cash. But for the areas where there is internet problem or people who do not have internet facility, now the government is going to make a big change in the rules of offline payment. The way online payment is being done now, in the coming time, payment can be done offline i.e. without internet also with the same speed.

The Reserve Bank is working on a framework to make digital payments accessible to every person. Preparations are underway on a large scale to provide retail digital payment service to the people in offline mode. Through these new systems, any person will be able to make digital payment from his mobile or computer even without internet.

Regarding this, a scheme has been announced on 6 August 2021 under which a pilot test has been started. In this pilot test of technology, it is being seen that how people can be given the facility to make digital payment even in no internet or low speed internet, such payment will be completely in offline mode. All the digital payments we make now require internet and without internet the payment fails. Although payment is done in low internet but it takes a long time.

Here are the results of the pilot project:
The preparation of the Reserve Bank for offline payment is going on since last year. Three pilot projects have been successfully run from September 2020 to June 2021. Under this, about 2.41 lakh small-scale transactions of a total of Rs 1.16 crore were done. As per the current rules, Unified Payment Interface (UPI) requires internet connectivity and a smartphone. UPI is used extensively in Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities and towns. Now to increase its scope, the Reserve Bank is also focusing on offline payment mode.

Offline payment through e-RUPI:
The government has also taken steps in this direction, recently e-RUPI digital payment was launched in which offline transaction facility is available. This transaction can be done on a feature phone without internet and can share this transaction through SMS or QR code. Considering the growing number of digital payments, many companies and banks are exploring the possibility of offline payments to reach the people who still use feature phones.

Visa also made offline card:
Let us tell you that credit card company Visa also announced in August this year that it is working with Yes Bank and Axis Bank on offline digital payments. For this, Visa has created a chip-based ‘Visa Debit’, Credit and Prepaid card, which can make offline payments even without internet or low internet connectivity. In this chip based card, the limit will be fixed according to the expenditure per day and will get Rs 2000. 200 rupees can be spent in one transaction. A wallet will be created in it, in which money will be deposited according to the limit of every day.
