"The Reserve Bank of India recently added new requirements for processing recurring transactions through the RBI-E mandate, intended to enhance the safety and security of these transactions," reads the email from Microsoft. "We at Microsoft are updating our payment systems to enable recurring payments in accordance with these requirements. In the meantime to help avoid disruption, we have added 8-months of Xbox Game Pass ultimate to your account at no additional charge so you don't have to worry about making recurring payments during this time and can just enjoy playing games.
"New subscribers can get 7 months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for free when they sign up and pay for the first month on any of the three tiers of Xbox Game Pass (PC, Console, Ultimate). This also applies to existing members who want to renew their subscription.
