Federal Bank launches RuPay backed NCMC wallet Debit Cards

| @indiablooms | 07 Feb 2024, 05:52 pm

Federal Bank becomes one of the earliest private sector banks to launch NCMC integrated Debit cards.

National Common Mobility Card (NCMC) is a feature introduced on RuPay Contactless Debit Card which allows card holders to make payments across NCMC enabled terminals at metro stations, buses, etc in an offline mode within fraction of second, just by tapping the card on the card reader. NCMC is equipped with multiple functions, including stored value payments (currently up to Rs.2000/- and subject to change as prescribed by RBI from time to time) to simplify travel across different modes by digitizing payment.

For activating the NCMC functionality and to start using the card for offline transactions, the card holder is required to enable “contactless feature” either through Mobile banking, Internet banking or through IVR. Post enablement, visit the customer care desk of Metro station and initiate the activation and money load transaction. Money can be loaded in the card through cash or through the existing savings account at the metro counter itself. After loading money, the customer can just tap the card at the entry and exit of the terminal and unveil the convenience of travelling without purchasing a ticket separately. The amount debited/available will be displayed on the metro terminal screen at the time of tapping the card.

"We are thrilled to unveil a new and ambitious project for Federal Bank RuPay Debit Card holders who can now use their debit cards for offline payments at transit operators. The NCMC is poised to revolutionize the way citizens navigate urban transportation networks across the country. With the goal of enhancing convenience and efficiency, the NCMC introduces a unified approach to travel, simplifying the commuting experience for millions. We feel that this step taken by Federal Bank and RuPay would empower the customers and give them the flexibility to travel and pay on the go," said Chitrabhanu KG, SVP and Country Head- Retail Assets and cards- Federal Bank.
