Now you can buy Delhi Metro token, recharge smart card via app

New Delhi, Jul 3: Delhi Metro commuters will now be able to buy token and recharge their smart cards through their mobile banking application, the Delhi Metro Rail Corp (DMRC) said on Sunday.
“The DMRC today launched the cashless token sale/smart card recharge facility by using the Bharat Quick Response (QR) code displayed at the token counters and customer care centres of metro stations,” said a DMRC statement.
The service can be availed through any bank application and has been provided by HDFC Bank.
The passenger would have to select ‘pay through QR’ option in the app and then direct the smartphone camera-wise to the QR code displayed at the ticket counter. He or she can then enter the fare and make the payment.
Currently, this facility has been made available at five Metro stations — Rajiv Chowk, Rajendra Place, Seelampur, Pitampura and Nehru Place, and would be introduced subsequently in a phased manner at all metro stations. (Agencies)
