Airtel Payments Bank Unveils NCMC Debit, Prepaid Cards

Airtel Payments Bank is revolutionizing financial management with the introduction of innovative NCMC (National Common Mobility Cards)-enabled debit and prepaid cards. This initiative, launched in collaboration with the National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), offers a comprehensive solution that merges traditional debit/prepaid functionalities with the advantages of NCMC technology.

Unifying Transactions and Simplifying Travel

Say goodbye to juggling multiple cards for everyday purchases and public transportation! Here’s how these NCMC cards streamline your life:

  • Effortless Commuter Experience: These cards function as metro cards, bus passes, and parking fare payment options across a growing network of over 100 Indian cities. No more waiting in lines for tickets – simply tap and go for quick and hassle-free fare deductions.
  • Flexible Fare Options: Enjoy the freedom to choose between pay-as-you-go options or opt for the convenience of pre-purchasing concession and monthly passes directly through partner transportation providers. This eliminates the need to manage separate cards for different operators, saving you time and frustration.
  • Seamless Everyday Payments: Equipped with EMV chip-and-PIN technology, these cards ensure the highest level of security for your everyday transactions at POS terminals across stores. Additionally, enjoy the hygienic advantage of contactless payments, eliminating the need to handle cash or physical bills.
  • Enhanced Online Shopping: The cards offer the flexibility of secure online transactions on your favorite e-commerce websites, allowing you to shop seamlessly without needing separate debit or credit cards.

Sustainable Design for a Greener Future

Airtel Payments Bank prioritizes environmental responsibility by crafting these cards from eco-friendly e-PVC material. This commitment resonates with eco-conscious consumers and aligns with the growing movement towards environmentally friendly practices.

Effortless Management and Widespread Accessibility

  • Convenient Top-ups: Manage your card with ease and top-up your balance directly through the user-friendly Airtel Thanks App, ensuring you’re never caught short.
  • Simple Acquisition: Currently, NCMC debit cards can be conveniently ordered through the app or acquired by visiting designated banking points and metro stations. Soon, NCMC prepaid cards will be readily available online and in retail stores, offering wider accessibility to a broader range of customers.

Seamless Top-ups with Bharat BillPay

Adding to the unmatched convenience, Airtel Payments Bank NCMC cardholders can now leverage the SBI Bharat BillPay platform for online recharges. This collaboration with NPCI Bharat BillPay Ltd. empowers users to top up their cards with amounts up to Rs 10,000 using various payment methods like prepaid cards, debit cards, or credit cards. The service is already live for several metro networks, including Noida Metro, Nagpur Metro, Chennai Metro, Kanpur Metro, and more, with even greater accessibility expected as additional platforms integrate soon. This integration eliminates the need to physically visit recharge booths and ensures a quick and secure way to keep your NCMC card topped up for seamless travel.

A Single Card for a Multifaceted Life

Airtel Payments Bank’s NCMC cards are designed to simplify your daily routine. Whether you’re navigating your commute, managing everyday purchases, or making online transactions, these cards provide a secure, convenient, and eco-friendly solution. This innovative launch aligns with India’s vision for a unified and interoperable payment ecosystem, empowering you to embrace a more streamlined and sustainable future. By combining the functionality of debit/prepaid cards with seamless NCMC integration and the ease of online top-ups through the Bharat BillPay platform, Airtel Payments Bank’s NCMC cards offer a truly comprehensive and user-centric solution for managing your finances on the go.
