How NCMC can Improve Bus PTO Profitability
Public transport operators (PTOs) in India need to improve operations and services but they are undermanned, overworked and losing money despite government subsidies. One of the NCMC objectives is for banks to fund ticketing services to improve accountability, reduce fare leakage and implement proper revenue collection and management. Today, some operators have launched ticketing systems based on the ‘Quick Specification for Payment Application of RuPay Chip (qSPARC)’ national open-loop payment system for public transportation in India.

This session explores the lessons learned so far:
What is the experience and the feedback from transport operators? Does NCMC need to be refined to better serve the needs of bus PTOs? Could the implementation of NCMC be improved in future projects to improve upon results achieved so far?

Hear these 3 speakers share their experience of implementing NCMC in Indian bus public transport systems:
