Bank card used in cash transactions, but which is not a credit card. In a
debit card transaction, the amount of a purchase is withdrawn from
the available balance in the cardholder's account. If the available
funds are insufficient, the transaction is not completed.
Also called asset card (in the US), or payment card (in the UK)
The debit card had limited popularity in India as the merchant is
charged for each transaction. The debit card was mostly used
for ATM transactions. RBI has announced that such fee are not
justified so the transaction has no processing fee. Most Indian banks
issue Visa debit cards, though some banks (like SBI and Citibank India)
also issue Maestro cards. The debit card transactions are routed
through Visa or MasterCard networks in India and overseas rather
than directly via the issuing bank.
Why is 2nd Level authentication made mandatory
for all Card related online transactions?
All online card transactions, as per RBI’s mandate, need to have a second
level authentication when a transaction is made. Hence the cards need to be
registered for Verified by Visa(VBV)or MasterCard Secure Code to complete
an online transaction. A transaction can be carried out only on those websites
that are Verified by Visa or MasterCard Secure Code enabled.

How do I choose a debit card?
Customers holding savings or current accounts must always
choose a debit card suitable to their accounts and the expenses
they would incur. Compare a few debit cards before you actually
make your choice. Understand what each card offers, the fees
levied, the services offered and the minimum balance
requirements before signing off on a card. Additionally some debit
cards also offer rewards programs and these would be beneficial
to higher spenders. Also make sure that while performing e-
commerce or online transactions, the bank and the payment
platforms are secure to avoid any fraudulent activity on your debit
cards. Always choose a card best suited to your financial needs
and not because the card is packed with privileges and offers.
