A new study published by IMARC Group, one of the world’s leading research and advisory firms, finds that the Indian smart cards market is currently at the threshold of a revolution. Smart cards are not only rapidly replacing paper and magnetic stripe cards wherever they are in use but have also started penetrating into sectors that had remained untapped so far.

Despite its strong growth, however, findings from the report suggested that the development of the Indian smart cards market is currently being hampered by a number of infrastructure constraints. According to the report, implementation of smart cards in a government organization or business establishment requires a significant investment in setting up and upgradation of the current infrastructure. The cost of implementing a smart card based system is very high compared to the cost of smart cards.

• Since most organizations in India are still paper based and not IT enabled, it makes implementation of smart cards even more expensive.
• In the banking sector, currently around 99% of the total cards issued are based on magnetic strips and implementation of EMV based bank cards has been slow. This is mainly due to the fact that only 50% of the current ATMs with nominal software and hardware upgrades can accept EMV chip cards. The remaining ATMs would require significant hardware upgrades, or even replacement, to enable EMV chip card acceptance.
• Apart from setting up a smart card infrastructure, its efficient management is also critical to run a smart cards project successfully. The failure of the “Go Mumbai” smart cards project is a perfect example of this fact. The “Go Mumbai” card was first introduced in 2007 by BEST and later on extended to central and western railways local train services. But the project crashed after Kaizen Limited, the company involved in the project, failed to supply enough number of hand-held devices to check the cards validity. Apart from this, inappropriate maintenance of the infrastructure also led to the machines having technical problems and some even getting shut down.

IMARC’s new report entitled “Indian Smart Cards Industry Market Report & Forecast 2011-2016” gives a deep insight into the Indian smart cards market.
