Contactless cards are next in the offing from Axis Bank.
Axis Bank would soon be launching contactless cards, which will work on the near-field communication (NFC) technology. The bank would be targeting its premium section of customers, which amounts to over 1.70 lakhs of its total customer base in India. Axis Bank would be launching a pilot phase with the inclusion of just 100 merchants based in two cities and this facility will be available with the bank’s premium debit cards, credit cards and multi-currency forex cards.
Axis Bank would be targeting customers using debit cards for everyday transactions with amounts lesser than Rs 2000. This has ideated from current trends which show that debit card transactions worth Rs 12,000 to 13,000 crore are done with payments below Rs 2000. Since contactless payment technology is yet to catch up with Indian customers, Axis Bank would be launching this feature with the segment that will be able to quickly adapt to it.

‘Secure Plus’ by Axis Bank: Redefining Debit Card Security
Be it spending on the latest gadget, splurging on jewellery or even paying for a meal at a restaurant, swiping cards is still not a commonplace sight in India. Less than 10% of users actually go along with card transactions throwing all care to the wind.
Believing the concern over card security to be the primary reason for such a behaviour, Axis Bank has recently launched ‘Secure+’, a debit card with extended security features. Encompassing a specific ‘security’ chip, Secure Plus allows its users to disable it during certain periods. In case the user loses his/her wallet with a bunch of other cards, a call to an Axis Bank executive can render Secure Plus and all other cards invalid for use.
Extended security features such as these allow the user to claim up to Rs. 75,000 on disputed transactions. Emergency assistance in cases of non-cash transactions pertaining to lost tickets or wallets is also provided. Add to that an accident insurance cover of Rs. 5 lakhs and suddenly, a Rs. 300 annual charge for the card looks like a steal of a deal.
