Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has given in-principle approval to fintech startup 1Pay Mobile Pvt. Ltd to operate as a payment aggregator. With this, 1Pay becomes one of the first companies in India to get approval from RBI for the payment aggregator license. RBI has been strict in its evaluation of entities that have applied for the payment aggregator license. Multiple online payment gateways seeking the aggregator license came under the intense scrutiny of the Central bank for, know-your-customer (KYC) related issues, past dealings with cryptocurrency exchanges and gaming apps, and for not complying with net worth criteria that RBI had set out.
