IRCTC Chairman and administrator A K Manocha stated that the card could be a first-of-its-kind within the market as both virtual as well as physical cards are being issued to customers in two variants.

Cards are available from UBI offices or through IRCTC on-line. Initially the service will be obtainable for booking tickets and later on shopping and bill payments are going to be added.
