In the Bhayangkara Traffic Anniversary event in collaboration with Bank BNI, a Smart SIM trial was launched for a limited circle within the Indonesian National Police. This Smart SIM has 3 functions, namely storing data of SIM receiver, historical data of traffic violations and electronic money. Especially for electronic money currently only uses BNI electronic money or BNI TapCash. In the future Korlantas will also open this Smart SIM by using electronic money of Himbara Banks as well as other Banks.

Susi Adi Sulistyowati also added that the presence of Smart SIM initiated by Korlantas POLRI, Bank Indonesia, OJK and Bank BNI will provide added value to Driver License function so that in the future Diver License will not only function as a driving license, but added the function of storing Driver License owner’s data, data history of Driver License card traffic violations and also as electronic money that can be used for payment of ticketed violation fines, TOL payments, Commuter Line train payments, Transjakarta Bus payments, parking payments and other functions of electronic money. However, this time the function of electronic money is only a limited trial within the POLRI environment according to a license from Bank Indonesia. Function of the new electronic money will be widely opened to public after obtaining a license from Bank Indonesia. Smart SIM is a tool for BI and OJK and BNI to improve financial literacy for the wider community.
The newly launched Smart SIM is currently only being issued by BNI only according to the approval given from BI and OJK.
