Change in Credit and Debit Card

The token system converts all debit and credit card data into ‘tokens’. By which your card information is kept hidden in the device. RBI has said that any person can convert the card into token by requesting the token bank. There is no charge to the cardholder for tokenizing the card. If you convert your card into a token, then your card information will be saved in the token on any shopping website or e-commerce website.
