The card will eliminate the problems experienced by employees onboard in managing physical cash during the ship's operation at sea, according to a statement from the bank. Traditional payment methods are hampered by the infrastructure on naval ships, especially while the ship is at sea and has no access to the internet. "The concept will be replicated at other naval ships and various defence establishments for creating a secured, convenient and sustainable payment ecosystem," CS Setty, MD (Retail & Digital Banking), SBI said.
