Hi! Thanks for using Kashware. We would like you to read these terms of service (“Terms/Terms of Service”) carefully, before you use our platform or any of its services (we will call them “Services”). This is important because these Terms are a legally binding document. They govern your use of our website and our mobile application called Kashware (collectively, the “Platform”).

Acceptance of Terms
Compliance with Applicable Laws: You must ensure that your use of the Platform and the Services complies with Applicable Laws.
Inquiries as to Minors: By taking responsibility for a Minor, you authorize us to make inquiries (if we choose to do so), either directly or through third parties to validate the information provided about the Minor or your relationship with the Minor. This could include information to verify your relationship as a Parent to the Minor(s). If we are unable to verify the information that you provide, we may: (i) refuse to establish a Kashware Account (defined below) and, or, Wallet Account for the Minor; (ii) close the Kashware Account and/or, Wallet Account of a Minor; (iii) close the Parent’s Kashware Account and/or, Wallet Account; and/or (iv) terminate our Services or portion(s) thereof.
Kashware Account: Before you can apply to open a Wallet Account, you must create a profile with Kashware through the Platform (“Kashware Account”). Once you have successfully opened a Kashware Account, you can use the Platform and apply to open a Wallet Account. To create a Kashware Account, you must provide us your phone number (which we will authenticate with a one-time password). You must also permit Kashware to access to your SMS, contacts, location data, installed applications, and such other device data that Kashware may require (from time to time) to provide you the Services. At the time of creating the Kashware Account or any time after that (while you are using the Services) Kashware may also ask you to provide details about yourself which include without limitation:
You must add such information and documents requested in the manner prompted on the Platform. If you revoke any permissions on the Platform, we may restrict or deny your use of the Platform (or any of its features) to the effect that such information or documentation is necessary to provide you the Services.
If we believe that the information you provide to us is unreliable or incorrect, then, we may (at our discretion) disallow you from opening a Kashware Account or Wallet Account. If we discover any deficiency in the information provided by you on a later date, we may terminate your Kashware Account and your Wallet Account. Please note that we may (from time to time) ask you to provide us information about yourself to allow you to continue using the Platform and its Services.
KYC requirement: As per RBI Regulations, the Bank can issue you a Wallet only if you comply with the KYC requirements or provide us with the ‘minimum details’ about yourself. Whether you can use all or some of the Wallet’s features depends on whether you have provided minimum details (about yourself) or if you have completed full KYC on the Platform. Don’t worry! We will hand hold you through this once you start using the Platform.
You can also share your transactions on the Platform with all your other friends who are using Kashware (we call this the “Social Feed”). Of course, you have the option to turn this off whenever you want. Bear in mind, the Platform treats all Kashware users who are in your phone’s contacts list as your ‘friends’.
What is a Card: We may offer you a virtual card linked to your Wallet on the Platform (“Virtual Card”) and give you the option to request for a physical card (associated to your Wallet) (“Physical Card”). You may use these to make payments at merchants or to withdraw cash from ATMs; this of course depends on the type of Wallet you have been issued (more on this below). You may disable these cards at any time, through the Platform. You may use your Virtual Card or Physical Card to spend from your personal Wallet within these prescribed limits. You cannot sell or transfer the Physical Card. We may cancel, repossess, or revoke your Physical Card (at any time without prior notice) subject to Applicable Law. We may also refuse to process any transaction which we believe may violate these Terms.
User’s relationship with PPI
Who issues the products: PPI will issue the Wallet to you (if you successfully complete the KYC process/minimum details requirement and any other requirements that we may prescribe from time to time). Remember, the Wallet is not issued by Kashware. It is issued by PPI. Kashware provides and maintains the Platform which acts as an interface through which you can access your Wallet Account.
Who holds your funds: Kashware does not hold your funds either. PPI maintains the Wallets which hold your funds, and against which all payments and transfers are settled. So funds in your Wallet are solely held by PPI. Ergo, when you send funds, receive funds, or make payments to merchants, PPI debits or credits your account based on the instructions you send through the Platform.
Features of the Wallets issued to you
We may offer you any or all of these types of Wallets (through the Platform):
Min-KYC semi-closed Wallet
Full KYC semi-closed Wallet
The features of each of these Wallets are described below. These features are subject to and may change based on changes in Applicable Law.
Your Min-KYC Wallet will be reloadable. However, loading and reloading can only be done from a bank account or a credit card.
You will not be able to load more than INR 10,000 per month and INR 1,20,000 per financial year to a Min-KYC Wallet.
The amount outstanding at any point of time in your Min-KYC Wallet cannot exceed INR 10,000.
You will be able to use the Min-KYC Wallet only for Person-to-Merchant transfers, i.e. to purchase goods and services.
Any transfer of funds from the Min-KYC Wallet to bank accounts and other wallets of PPI and/or any other PPI issuer is not permitted.
You can close the Min-KYC Wallet at any time by making a request to us through the Platform and the outstanding balance at the time of closure shall be transferred ‘back to source’ (i.e. the payment source from where the Wallet was loaded).
Full KYC semi-closed Wallet:
This type of Wallet will be issued to you only after you successfully complete your full KYC.
This Wallet will be reloadable in nature.
The amount outstanding in your Wallet can not exceed INR 1,00,000 at any point of time.
You will be able to transfer funds ‘back to source’ (i.e. the source from which the Wallet was loaded) or to your own bank account (after verification).
You will have the option to pre-register certain beneficiaries to whom you can transfer up to INR 1,00,000 per month. For non-pre-registered beneficiaries you will only be able to undertake Person-to-Person Transfers of up to INR 10,000 every month.
While there are no separate limits on the purchase of goods and services using your Full KYC semi-closed Wallet, we may decide to set limits to such expenditure within the overall limit prescribed under Applicable Law. These limits will be communicated to you within the Platform.
You can set limits on Person-to-Person Transfers (within the limits we specify).
You can close the Full KYC semi-closed Wallet at any time by making a request to us through the Platform. The outstanding balance at the time of closure will be transferred to your bank account or ‘back to source’ (i.e the source from which the Full KYC semi-closed Wallet was loaded). We are entitled to call for the relevant information/documents pertaining to your bank account and/or Wallet loading source, where funds have to be transferred post closure of the Full KYC semi-closed Wallet.
You also have the option to pre-designate a bank account or other PPI (either issued by PPI or some other issuer) to which the balance amount available in the Full KYC semi-closed Wallet will be transferred in the event of its closure, or expiry of validity, amongst other reasons.
KYC documents may be required from you by PPI at the time of registration and/or at a later date and/or from time to time, for availing and/or continuation of the Wallet. The form and process of KYC may change as per changes in Applicable Law.
Aadhaar OTP based KYC:
You represent to us that you have not opened any other account using this method and that you will not do so in the future either.
A Wallet opened through this method will be valid only for a period of 1 year. Within this period, you will have to undergo the KYC process through Aadhaar biometric based KYC or any other method made available by us. If you do not undertake the KYC process as required, your Wallet will be closed.
You will not be able to credit more than INR 2,00,000 to this account in one financial year.
No interest will be payable to you on the balance reflected in the Wallet.
Wallets are not transferable.
We can suspend/discontinue the Wallets issued to you at any time, for any cause, including but not limited, to the following:
For any suspected violation of RBI Regulations/Applicable Law;
For any suspected discrepancy in the particulars provided by you, information provided by you to do KYC, or documentation or Kashware Account Data provided by you;
To combat potential fraud, sabotage, wilful destruction, threat to national security or for any other force majeure event;
On account of technical failure, modification, upgradation, variation, relocation, repair, and/or maintenance due to any emergency or for any technical reasons;
On account of any transmission deficiencies;
If the mobile connection with which your Wallet is related is unoperational; and
If we believe, that cessation/suspension is necessary for any other legitimate purpose.
Wallet charges & validity
Any amount in your Wallet that is utilized towards making payments for any transaction is automatically debited from your Wallet. Our responsibility is limited to debiting your Wallet and paying any merchant that you transact with. We do not endorse, promote, champion or warrant any goods or services that you buy using the Wallet.
We have the right to levy charges on any amounts loaded to the Wallet or any amounts spent/ transferred by you while using your Wallet. We will let you know what these charges are through the Platform.
We reserve the right to set off any balance in the Wallet against amounts due for transactions processed as per your request.
Wallet expiry and balance forfeiture
Wallets with no financial transactions for a consecutive period of one year will be made inactive by us, after notifying you. We may re-activate such Wallet after validation and applicable due diligence. But apart from this, at present, we do not cause Wallets to expire or forfeit the balance amount in these Wallets.
We reserve the right to introduce a policy for Wallet expiration and balance forfeiture in the future (in line with Applicable Law). If we do so, we will notify you prior to such expiration, if mandated by Applicable Law.
Refunds in case of failed/ returned/ rejected/ cancelled transactions will be applied to your Wallet, to the extent that the payment was made initially by a debit to the Wallet, even if such refund results in exceeding the limit prescribed for that category of Wallet.
If you wish to receive a refund on an amount that has been debited from your Wallet on some any other ground, please email us email@example.com explain the circumstances and your reason for the request.
If your request is valid, we will make reasonable efforts to honour the request and refund the amount in question to your Wallet subject to Applicable Laws.
Refund requests may not be entertained for transactions those are reversed/reverted if they’re processed due to some technical issue in our system or some suspicious activity found in a transaction.
We will try to respond to your refund requests at the earliest. However, we will not be responsible for any delays which are outside our control or are due to third parties such as merchants who we rely on to process your refund requests. Please note that we do not undertake any liability for the processing of the refund requests.
You have a right to initiate a chargeback request in accordance with the Bank’s policy. Please note that Kashware does not have a role to play in the processing of chargeback requests and the same are processed solely by the Bank.
We reserve the right to review your account and transaction history pursuant to a chargeback request, in order to determine the veracity of a chargeback request, including determining the occurrence of any fraud. If we have any reason to believe that there has been a fraudulent activity on your Wallet, we reserve the right to terminate, block or suspend your Wallet with immediate effect. You shall have no claims against us in this regard.
You must have money in your Wallet to be able to send or spend it. Unfortunately, if you don’t, we will have to stop that transaction from going through. You cannot have a negative balance in your Account or incur overdrafts either.
Unauthorized use of the Platform
Tell us at once if you believe your Wallet Account or Kashware Account has been accessed without your permission. If you feel something of this sort has occurred, please email us firstname.lastname@example.org. We also have a chat feature within our Platform which you can use. The sooner you tell us about the breach, the better equipped we will be to avoid/minimise any loss.
We may charge a fee for providing our Services, which we will convey to you through the Platform, (including any periodic revisions). For instance, we may charge you a fee for availing features of your Wallet Account or using the Physical Card. Rest assured that we will let you know before charging you anything.
We may terminate the Services we provide at any time, for any reason, and without advance notice. This means we can stop providing you with any Services, or impose new or additional limits without notifying you. However, we will always notify you when the law requires us to update you regarding any changes.
Privacy and data security
Third Party Access: We and our third-party service providers may use your data, including your financial information, to improve our Services. We and our third-party service providers may use anonymous, aggregate financial information to perform analytical research, engage in performance tracking or benchmarking, or to publish, distribute, or license the aggregated, anonymous research data for any purpose.
Despite our best efforts, you understand that transmissions on the internet cannot always be secure. You are responsible for safeguarding your mobile device, phone number, one-time passwords, log-in credentials and any other information used to access our Services. If you do not take necessary safeguards you will be responsible, within limits imposed by law, for any loss associated with the unauthorized use of your Kashware Account and Wallet Account.
Undertaking your KYC: You authorize us (and any third party appointed by us) to facilitate your KYC process as may be required from time to time. This may include asking you for the documentation required under law as well as additional information, or verifying your information against third party databases or other sources. If you refuse to complete the KYC requirements stipulated under law, we may need to deny or limit your use of the Services. The collection, verification, audit and maintenance of the correct and updated information about you is a continuous process, so we reserve the right at any time, to take steps necessary to ensure compliance with all relevant and applicable KYC requirements.
Who shall undertake KYC: To undertake KYC verification (wherever applicable), you agree and acknowledge that we may engage a third party service provider.
Liability for failing to make transfers
We will not be liable, for instance:
if, through no fault of ours, your Wallet does not have sufficient funds for the transaction or funds are unavailable for withdrawal;
if a computer system, ATM, or PoS terminal was not working properly and you knew about the problem when you started the transaction;
if the ATM where you are making the transaction does not have enough cash;
if a merchant refuses to honour the payment made through the Wallet;
if circumstances beyond our control (including but not limited to fire, flood, terrorist attack or national emergency) prevent the transaction, despite reasonable precautions that we have taken;
if you attempt to use a Physical Card that has not been properly activated; or
if the Physical Card has been reported as lost or stolen, has been suspended by us, or we have reason to believe the transaction is not authorized by you.
Third party disclosures
We may disclose the information you provide us to third parties:
(i) where it is necessary or helpful for completing a transaction;
(ii) in order to comply with any law or to comply with requirements of any government agency or court orders;
