It's secure

Contactless payments are safe and secure. You are  protected against fraud, just like you are with Chip payments. To ensure that, merchants that accept contactless do not require you to sign for purchases less than Rs25,000 or equivalent in foreign currency. However, for your protection, purchases over Rs25,000 or equivalent in foreign currency require a signature.


It's free

You won't be charged any additional fees* for using your contactless card. (Standard fees and charges may apply.)
