In appreciation of initiative shown by various companies to introduce card based electronic Money Schemes in the country, in January 2000 the NPS Project issued Guidelines, which shall be followed by any party wishing to introduce electronic auditable payment schemes in the country. The aim is to comply with the NPS objective of reducing cash usage and to promote non-cash based instruments in the country.  The guidelines therefore serve as a safeguard measure to consumer interests as well as having standardization, which will facilitate future cooperation and system integration.
