Yes, an OTP is required for the execution of payments. For Sandbox purposes however, the OTP is always the same and can be viewed from the Sandbox Accounts Dashboard in the portal (you need to be logged in to view this).
The Sandbox environment allows developers to test payments by providing a number of “test customers”, i.e. virtual customers with their own test accounts, balances and transaction history. The accounts of these test customers can be used in API payment calls, to simulate payments in the real world. The relevant changes are recorded in account balances and transaction history.

The submission of future dated payments is allowed through the “Create Payment Request” API using future value and/or execution date. Any of the two fields may be completed while submitting the payment and the other will be automatically completed by the Bank, if left empty.

Both “ValueDate” and “ExecutionDate” fields may be left empty and the Bank will populate the values for each transaction. In general, the combination of “ValueDate” and “ExecutionDate” allows the submission of payments with Same Day, Next Day or SPOT value date. If the cut-off time for the payment has been exceeded, a warning will be raised on Payment Authorisation Screen and if the payment service user (PSU) chooses to proceed with the selected execution date, the payment will be processed by the Bank on a best-effort basis.
