India is a predominantly cash driven economy. Almost 97% of the transactions are done through cash. Payment cards such as debit and credit cards have risen during the past decade due to growing consumer awareness and Internet penetration. However, almost half the population of India is un-banked. Only 55% of the population have deposit account with banks. This leads to the basic need for prepaid payment channels. Besides being an appropriate payment tool for the unbanked or the under banked, prepaid cards have become preferred choices for corporate India and consumers at large.

Bank branches are increasingly launching specific purpose cards to rope in more customers through risk free channels. Employers prefer paying through prepaid cards and employees are welcoming the move due to convenience of handling cards instead of cash/cheques. Boosted by strong corporate demand and rising consumption amidst general consumers, the Indian prepaid card market shall grow multifold at a hefty CAGR of around 40% during 2012-2017.
