Philips promoted NXP Semiconductors today said it has been selected by the Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS) to power contactless smart cards for automatic fare collection using Automatic Ticket Vending Machines (ATVMs) across the country and the project will begin by next month.

Initially, the ATVMs will be rolled out across five major cities in India, namely New Delhi, Secunderabad, Kolkata, Bhubaneswar and Pune.

As per the agreement, NXP will provide MIFARE DESFire-based ICs for approximately 6.5 lakh contactless cards over a period of one year.

''The project is expected to commence in September 2009 and will initially be rolled out in two cities,'' NXP Semiconductors Senior Director (Global Sales and Marketing India) Ashok Chandak told reporters here.

However, he did not mention the name of the two cities where the project is expected to commence next month.
