RBI will establish Digital Payment Intelligence Platform RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das said, ‘The Reserve Bank has taken several measures in the last few years to promote digital payments while ensuring security. These measures have increased the confidence of users. However, the increasing incidents of digital fraud highlight the need for a system to prevent and reduce such fraud. Therefore, it is proposed to establish a Digital Payment Intelligence Platform to share network level intelligence information and real-time data in the digital payment ecosystem. To take this initiative forward, the Reserve Bank has constituted a committee to examine various aspects of setting up this platform.
