As i am interested in Contactless Smart Cards so i have started my own study for information about contact less smart cards security. i have searched for books and articles on contactless smart cards but i cannot find any comprehensive text on contactless smart cards security and standards. Can you please guide where i can find text on contactless smart cards standards, security, attacks on contactless cards, research papers and other useful information on contact less smart cards.
Please guide me from beginning as i am not a technical person.

The reason why you didn't find anything is because the technology is called RDID.
Start here for a general explanation and some references.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RFID
Then continue here: (AIM is the global Auto ID Manufacturers organisation)
http://www.aimglobal.org/technologies/rfid/
There's also an RFID journal:

RFID is merely the transport mechanism used with the contactless version of smart cards.  Smart cards are more sophisticated than your typical RFID application.

Check out the wiki for some info as well as links to standards bodies and more,

This might be a good place to start to get a handle on the technology,
