With NTS, acquiring banks, aggregators, merchants and others can get themselves certified with NPCI and can play the role of Token Requestor to help save the token reference number (Token Reference On File or TROF) against all card numbers saved, it further said.

“All these businesses can maintain their RuPay consumer base utilising TROF for future transactions initiated by their respective RuPay consumers,” it said.

Tokenisation guidelines have to be met by January 1, 2022.
