Summary

Prepaid cards are gaining popularity at the expense of credit cards in India. This can be indicated by the fact that the number of outstanding credit cards in the country declined from 27.6 million in March 2008 to 18 million in March 2011. Banks are also being cautious in their promotion of credit cards as they fear a credit default. Instead Indian banks are focusing on promoting prepaid cards. A rising number of retail companies and brands in India are now offering prepaid cards as a strategy to retain customers and increase sales. Prepaid cards are increasingly being used by companies as a tool to retain customers and also ensure regular sales. The lack of consumer awareness about the types of prepaid cards that are available in the country is one of the main challenges preventing wider prepaid card usage in the country. Furthermore, prepaid cards have traditionally not been as aggressively marketed by banks as debit and credit cards. However, this trend is now changing, as the high growth recorded in the prepaid cards market is encouraging more companies and banks to provide prepaid card services. As such, Indian banks are now undertaking aggressive marketing and promotion activities to increase prepaid cards awareness in India. The Indian prepaid cards market is highly consolidated among three leading companies: Axis Bank, ICICI Bank and Itz Cash Card.
