Bangalore, India (Metro Rail Today): On the 10th year of operations of city’s Metro, Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL), is said to be launching the much-awaited National Common Mobility Card (NCMC) on October 21. 

BMRCL is all set to launch ‘One Nation, One Card’ with 25,000 cards ordered in its first batch. However, the Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation (BMTC) is not yet ready to offer the facility to commuters. 

Anjum Parwez ( Managing Director of BMRCL) said, 

The utility of the card, based on the Rupay payment system, is that it can be used on all Metro networks, buses, parking, and retail shopping.The Automatic Fare Collection gates at our Phase-I stations have been retrofitted to accept the NCMC card. All the Phase-II stations are already equipped to handle this facility. The Rupay debit card will be available at all banks and Metro stations

When he was asked about the pricing of NCMC, he said " We are still holding discussions and are yet to reach the final decision.” The present Metro travel card is available at Rs 50 and one needs to have a minimum balance of the same amount to make a trip" 

Anbu Kumar ( Managing Director of BMTC) told media
There is no doubt the card will be very useful to the public. We are still analysing and studying it and hope to take a final call on adopting it within a fortnight. BMTC could not adopt it as quickly as BMRCL.
