AGS Transact Technologies Aims To Issue 25 Lakh National Common Mobility Cards (NCMC) Over The Next Two Years

In a circular dated 23rd February 2024, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has permitted licensed bank and non-bank managed prepaid payment instruments (PPIs) to issue prepaid cards for use across various public transport systems, without the mandatory KYC verification. One of the prominent PPI offerings is the National Common Mobility Card (NCMC), an open-loop card that offers interoperability across different transport networks in India such as Metro.

AGS Transact Technologies, one of the largest omnichannel integrated payments solutions provider in India, has partnered with RBL Bank to issue NCMC for Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited. Following the recent announcement of RBI, the company expects an uptick in NCMC adoption to about 2 lakhs by June 2024, once the new process for issuance of NCMC is implemented, expectedly by mid-March. Overall, AGS Transact Technologies plans to issue around 25 lakh NCMCs over the next two years.

RBL Bank BMRCL NCMCs are secure and contactless open loop prepaid cards on Rupay platform that can be recharged easily through BMRCL RBL Bank NCMC app or a web portal and across BMRCL Metro stations and select RBL Bank branches. NCMCs are developed to work even in low network coverage areas, such as underground parking and metro stations. In addition to public transport payments, the cards can be used for fuel, bill payments, dining as well as retail & ecommerce platforms that accept RuPay payments.
