Indian industry consortium Zero-Mass is to use Bell ID's smart card management software ANDiS4EMV to provide a pilot EMV migration service for ICICI Bank, State Bank of India, Bank of Baroda, IndusInd Bank and Citibank.
New Delhi-based Zero-Mass is a consortium of financial IT companies working towards the national migration to EMV standards.
The five banks are the first in India to participate in a national EMV pilot scheme. Clearing and settlement for the pilot will be provided by the State Bank of India.
Bell ID's ANDiS4EMV turnkey package, which was launched at this year's Cartes tradeshow in Paris, will provide centralised life cycle management for all smart cards, including data preparation, script handling, key processing and risk parameter management.
The product also allows issuers to add, modify and delete on-card applications after cards have been issued.
Hywel Davies, Bell ID chairman, says: "After the recent launch of ANDiS4EMV, this implementation of the solution offers an example for other banks around the world preparing for mass-deployment of multi-application smart cards."
The software will be delivered by Magnum Solutions, Bell ID's partner in New Delhi.
