New Delhi. There is going to be a big change in the rules related to credit and debit cards from July 1, 2022. Actually, from July 1, the tokenization system will be implemented for card payments. The purpose of the tokenization system is to prevent online banking fraud. If you do not tokenize your card, the debit or credit card saved on the online store will be deleted.
