ICICI Bank launches Namma Chennai Smart Card
ICICI Bank has launched Namma Chennai Smart Card – a Common Payment Card System (CPCS) created in partnership with the Greater Chennai Corporation (GCC) and Chennai Smart City (CSCL).
The Namma Chennai Smart Card is said to give a one-stop solution for citizens to make various types of payments within Chennai city and beyond.
The Rupay powered co-branded, contactless prepaid card will enable multiple digital payments such as tax and utility bill payments at the GCC centers.
Apart from that, the prepaid card allows retail payments to be made within Chennai and also in retail stores and e-commerce websites across India.
Sudipta Roy – Unsecured Assets Head at ICICI Bank, commenting on the Namma Chennai Smart Card, said: “This new proposition aims at offering unparalleled convenience to the residents of Chennai and is a significant step towards transforming it into a Smart City. This is a testament to our constant efforts at creating a less cash ecosystem across the country, thereby encouraging our customers to adopt to digital modes of making payments.
“We look forward to more such collaborations with the Tamil Nadu Government to co-create solutions that offer flexibility and convenience to our valued customers.”
Chennai residents can get the Namma Chennai Smart Card issued and topped-up at GCC Main office at Ripon Building in Park Town and GCC Zone 10 office at Kodambakkam. The new card will be shortly extended to more than 200 GCC centers across Chennai, said ICICI Bank.
