The card will function on the “One Nation One Card” model across the country, according to officials from the Union ministry of urban affairs who have been working on it since 2006, when it was envisaged as part of the National Urban Transport Policy (NUTP).
The three together will enable the use of the national mobility card across the country without a conflict with existing point-of-sale (PoS) machines, said an official from the ministry who asked not to be named.
“This card runs on RuPay card and it will eliminate all your travel related problems. In many times, we do not have change to pay in cash while travelling in metro, bus or train, or for toll and parking. To overcome this issue, an automatic fare collection system was introduced.” PM Narendra Modi said
“Now, our dream of ‘one nation one card’ has been realised. People can also withdraw money using this common mobility card. This RuPay card can be used for travelling in metros in any part of the country. In Simple terms, we have merged the RuPay card with the mobility card” – PM Narendra Modi said
