PM Modi launches mobility card 'One Nation-One Card' in Ahmedabad
Ahmedabad , Mar 04: Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched One Nation-One Card to enable people to pay multiple kinds of transport charges on Monday.
PM Modi said, "After many attempts, One Nation-One Card will become a reality. You will be able to withdraw money, will be able to shop and travel in a metro or use other means of transportation, using a common mobility card."
"This card runs on RuPay card and it will eliminate all your travel related problems. Many a times, we do not have change to pay in cash while travelling in metro, bus or train, or for toll and parking. To overcome this issue, an automatic fare collection system was introduced," Modi said.
He said India used to import this system from foreign countries. "Since systems were made by different players, a card issued in one city did not work in another city. Thus, we asked various ministries, departments and even banks to resolve this issue," he said.
One Nation-One Card is on the lines of London, Singapore and many other international metropolises. It is for public transport that will entail connectivity between various modes of transport.

इस कार्ड से आप पैसे भी निकाल पाएंगे, शॉपिंग कर पाएंगे और किसी भी मेट्रो या ट्रांसपोर्ट के अन्य साधन में भी वही कार्ड इस्तेमाल हो जाएगा: पीएम श्री @narendramodi #GujaratSaysNaMoAgain pic.twitter.com/VLfsXN8xkO
Announced in 2018:
Speaking at a mobility summit in September 2018, Niti Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant had said a single card would bring seamless connectivity between various modes of transport. The card will allow people to travel hassle-free on the bus, metro and even suburban trains.
"The focus of our mobility strategy is on sustainable modes of public transport, transport oriented planning, digitisation, among others. The objective of the strategy is to plan for the citizens of India first, rather than focussing on vehicles alone, by providing sustainable mobility and accessibility by switching to a cleaner mode of transportation such as electric, ethanol, methanol, CNG, LNG and hydrogen fuel cells," Kant said at the "Future Mobility Summit-2018-India's Move to NextGen Transport Systems".
