National Common Mobility Card (NCMC) FAQs



What is the NCMC?

The National Common Mobility Card (NCMC), part of the ‘One Nation, One Card’ initiative, is a versatile, interoperable transport card designed for cashless payments across various public transport modes in India. It extends to retail purchases, toll taxes, and parking fees, promoting a unified and digital payment ecosystem.

How can I apply for an NCMC?

Where can the NCMC be used?

The NCMC can be used across multiple transport modes, including metro, buses, suburban railways, and also for toll and parking charges. Beyond transportation, it’s accepted at retail outlets that support NCMC payments.

What are the benefits of using an NCMC?

Convenience: Eliminates the need for multiple cards and cash transactions.

Speed: Offers quick tap-and-go payments through NFC technology.

The NCMC is primarily designed for offline, contactless transactions in transportation and retail outlets. However, if it is issued as a debit/credit/prepaid RuPay card, it may also be used for online purchases, depending on the card’s features provided by the issuing bank.

What should I do if I lose my NCMC?

If you lose your NCMC, report it immediately to the issuing bank to block the card and prevent unauthorized use. Follow the bank’s process to apply for a replacement card.

By integrating various payment needs into a single platform, the NCMC aims to streamline the travel experience and encourage a shift towards digital payments, reflecting a significant step towards enhancing public transport efficiency and convenience in India.
