BSE on Tuesday sought clarification from private banks on recent media reports regarding cyber-attacks.

On October 20, AP Hota, MD and CEO of National Payments Corporation of India, in a statement had said that the total amount involved is Rs. 1.3 crore as reported by various affected banks to NPCI. The complaints of fraudulent withdrawal were limited to 19 banks and 641 customers.
Between Visa, Mastercard and RuPay, a total of 32 lakh debit cards were affected, reports had said.
Hota, in the statement, had mentioned that no complaints were lodged from any of the RuPay cardholders. But, out of 3.2 million accounts, 0.6 million were RuPay cards which could have been possibly compromised.
