With Fime’s technical advisory and certification services, the terminal has been approved in line with the EMVCo contactless EMV® Level 1 requirements. This project is part of Fime’s efforts to champion the national ‘Make in India’ initiative by offering local end-to-end testing and certification services for Indian manufacturers.


Shri Arvind Kumar, Director General STQC, Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology Government of India, comments: “EMVCo approval plays a big role in the modernization of our mobility infrastructure. This is a huge step forward for the ‘Make in India’ initiative, which will strengthen economic growth and foster innovation. We look forward to further success stories from Fime and Indian manufacturers.”
