We are sure our rapidly increasing Indian cardmember base will enjoy not just the many doors opened by JCB's strong acceptance network but also a lucrative 40% cashback on all face-to-face transactions made by them on their RuPay JCB Debit and Credit cards in these countries."

Kunal Kalawatia, Chief of Products, NPCI said, "We are happy to announce the second phase of our cashback offer scheme for all RuPay JCB Credit and Debit Cardholders. After launching the first phase of this offer and receiving positive feedback on it, we now want to expand the offering to more geographies so that an extended pool of Indian travellers can benefit from lucrative cashbacks. During the New Year season, Thailand, Singapore, and Bahrain typically see an influx of Indian tourists. Therefore, we have attempted to synchronize the appropriate locations with the opportune time in introducing the continuation of our cashback offer scheme for RuPay JCB Cardholders. Furthermore, with a growing international acceptance network and the sustaining actualisation of the pent-up demand for international travel, we hope to continue to provide such attractive offers in other regions in the future."

On October 1, 2022, the cashback program's initial phase was unveiled. Up until December 31, 2022, RuPay JCB Debit and Credit Cardholders will receive the same cashback benefits for using their cards to make in-store transactions in Australia, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE)
