  • State Bank of India (SBI), the country’s largest bank, launched the ‘Nation First Transit Card’ to improve commuting experiences and encourage the use of digital payments.
  • The innovative ‘Nation First Transit Card’ aims to simplify digital ticket fare payments within a single card for various transport modes including metro, buses, water ferries, parking, and more.
  • Apart from transport payments, the card can also be used for retail and e-commerce transactions.
  • The ‘Nation First Transit Card’ is powered by RuPay and National Common Mobility Card (NCMC) technology, making it a potential game-changer for millions of Indians in their daily commute.
  • SBI’s NCMC facility enables its customers to use their debit cards as travel cards in metro rail and buses in areas where this service is available.
  • NCMC was proposed by the Nandan Nilekani Committee constituted by RBI.
  • It aims to promote cashless transactions and integrate commuter payments.
