Mobility card soon

unnamedMinistry of Urban Development has introduced a Smart National Common Mobility Card (NCMC) model to enable seamless travel by metros and transport systems besides retail shopping and purchases. Minister of Urban Development M Venkaiah Naidu has approved the ‘EMV Open Loop Card with stored value’. The card meets travel needs based on stored value of money for travelling by any means of transport and also enables account based retail applications. It will do away with separate cards for banking and transit requirements. Globally there is no nationwide common card except in Singapore where in inter-operability is confined to city. Naidu has directed officials to ensure early operation of Smart Mobility Cards and inform States for integration of other systems. After extensive study of various models followed across the world EMV Open Loop Card with stored value was approved by Naidu.
