Google Play Is Suspending Free Trials in India Following New RBI Regulations

“At the end of March, the Reserve Bank of India, India’s central bank and financial regulatory authority, announced new rules on recurring transactions. In response, Google is informing developers of temporary changes for Google Play users in India. The RBI’s new eMandate notification “calls for an additional layer of authentication for recurring transactions via credit cards, debit cards, UPI, and other prepaid payment instruments (PPIs),” explains Business Today. Because of these rules, Google has announced that it will pause new signups of auto-renewing subscriptions for users in India.”
