"The amount loaded in such PPIs during any month shall not exceed Rs 10,000 and the total amount loaded during the financial year shall not exceed Rs 1,20,000," the circular said.
"The amount outstanding at any point of time in such PPIs shall not exceed Rs 10,000."
According to the circular, the PPI issuers shall provide an option to close the instrument at "any time and also allow to transfer the funds 'back to source' at the time of closure".
