The Smart Card is a permanent event credential for people who have learned the techniques of Knowledge as taught by Maharaji, whose name is Prem Rawat. It displays the cardholder's name, photo, and unique Smart Card number printed over an attractive background design.

In general, "smart cards" look like credit cards. They contain a microchip on which data can be stored. This technology is gaining popularity around the world due to the card's virtually unlimited potential uses.

Our Smart Card is a “contactless card,” with an embedded chip stored under the plastic surface. Initially, the Smart Card microchip will store the cardholder's name and Smart Card number. The chip will have sufficient capacity to support new features as they are developed.
