Issue of Prepaid Forex Cards- Due Diligence and Adherence to KYC norms

 prepaid_Fotor

            In the recent past many banks have entered the arena of ‘prepaid foreign currency cards’. To increase the reach of their offerings, these cards are also made available through the network of Authorised Dealers/Full-fledged money changers.

             It has been brought to Reserve Bank of India  notice that some authorised dealers / full-fledged money changers may neither be exercising due diligence nor adhering to KYC norms while selling prepaid foreign currency cards (issued by a few select banks) to their customers.

Hence, Reserve Bank of India, vide Notification No RBI/2014-15/147 A.P. (DIR Series) Circular No.14, dtJuly 25, 2014 has larified that prepaid foreign currency cards are a form of foreign currency, similar to foreign currency notes or travellers cheques.

As such, the authorised dealers/FFMCs selling pre-paid foreign currency cards for travel purposes are required to comply with the same rigorous standards of due diligence and KYC as they would in case they were selling foreign currency notes/ travellers cheques to their customers.

It is expected after this clarification that the KYC norms will be strictly complied while selling pre-paid foreign currency cards.
