Knowing that many people are on a mission to simplify what essentials they carry around with them on a daily basis, Mumbai Metro created a multipurpose card. People with an account at the State Bank of India now have the option to sign up for a debit card that also doubles as a way to pay fares for transportation.

This hybrid card works with automatic fare collection gates when tapped, granting passengers instant access to trains. With an auto-load feature, this simplifies the process of having to transfer money, since funds come from a checking account. Outside of its uses for transportation, this Mumbai Metro card also works like a regular debit card, allowing for purchases made at retail shops and cash withdrawals from ATM machines.
