How is a ICICI Bank Chip Card better than a magnetic strip card?

The chip card is also known as EMV Card. EMV is the brand name of EMV Co. EMV stands for Europay MasterCard Visa.

This organization has set the standards for payment cards with chip. Due to the increasing fraud and misuse with the payments done by magnetic stripe cards, the smart EMV cards have been developed according to the EMV standard in order to prevent fraud and misuse.

This makes the chip card more secure against card fraud than cards that rely only on data encoded in a magnetic stripe on the back of the card.
