It is very similar to international cards such as Visa/Master.National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) initiated the launch of RuPay card in India. It was done with the intention of integration of payment systems in the country. It has also tied up with Discover Financial Services firm for promoting this.Lower transaction cost – International transactions lead to higher transaction costs.
