Indian Rail is soon going to launch smart cards for travellers.
"We are negotiating with SBI for issuing smart card for rail passengers," said Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee.
The card will be composite in nature to be used in metro, suburban and passenger trains. The card can also be used for getting e tickets.
A railway official however said, "The modalities are being worked out for the smart card which will be the first of its kind by the railways. We are in discussion with other stakeholders to make it a composite all-purpose card."
