Soon every one starts charging for UPI Transactions.. rage

Yes, because our FM minister Nirmala Sitharaman want to promote visa/mastercard.

E-payments industry counts the costs after zero MDR jolt.

For every transaction, a merchant pays MDR to its bank as a fee for accepting digital payments via UPI, Ru-Pay cards and other instruments. Both UPI and RuPay platforms are managed by the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI). The bank, in turn, pays portions of MDR as interchange fee, network fee and payments service provider (PSP) fees to stakeholders involved in the digital payment process, including the customer’s bank. NPCI gets a fee as well for UPI and RuPay transactions.

So, MDR is a source of revenue for multiple entities.

There is too much pressure on NPCI from the Indian Bank Association (IBA).

In January, representatives of e-payments firm met Sitharaman and shared their frank views, saying the new MDR step will hamper e-payments and the government should roll it back or compensate affected players for the revenue loss. The revenue hit is expected to be around Rs 1,800 crore to Rs 2,000 crore. One of the attendees told that the government was curious as to why payments firms were making a noise about the issue. “If banks don’t get any money, how will they pay us? Non-banking entities are also concerned about the issue as a matter of principle,” this person said.

There was no fresh announcement on the issue on in the Union Budget presented on February 1. But the issue is believed to have reached the Prime Minister’s Office. “Right now, there’s a little hope that a solution will be worked out and the stakeholders will get some money. But in three or six months, things could come to a standstill (if the issue is not resolved).”

I think it could be another month or two before the government makes any move”. Till then, banks might push Visa or Mastercard as in the current rules, there is no incentive to promote RuPay cards & UPI, which have a base of around 600 million.

P2M is just a matter of time

Have you ever thought about from where do all the payment providers & fintech companies earn to spend on their tech & pay their employees? Money does not fall from the sky,it is MDR which pays for all the intermediaries involved in a digital transaction. With 0 MDR banks don’t have much to worry because they can always earn from other sources but what will payment gateway providers/other small intermediaries will do who only rely on MDR for their revenue. Only 2 option they will have is to either shut their shop or shift exclusively to only those payment methods which allow them to earn(aka no UPI & rupay card). This UPI getting charges is exactly because of this reason so as to cover for 0 MDR losses because if UPI still remains free then one of the above mentioned 2 options will happen.
