Cosy UBER, in big ticket trouble!



The RBI, Indian central bank issued a directive to stop processing payments for UBER mobile app to all the Banks in India. UBER, a US based mobile application company processing all the in-app payments through its tax friendly Netherlands subsidiary UBER BV. This payment aggregation directly increases the FOREX outflow in India, which the RBI is struggling to control since the now RBI Governor Mr. Raghuram Rajan took charge in September 2013 due to the hefty industrial imports demanding FOREX.
This potentially slows down the growth of UBER in India, which is the second fastest growing market for the app outside of USA.

Amazon, Google Play Store, and few other international mobile application in-app purchases are following similar payment aggregation method, which will store the Credit Card information and skips to do the mandated 2-step authentication process to execute the payment faster. Earlier, RBI mandated OTP (One Time Password) for all the online transactions for Credit Cards.
