New Delhi: The top up (recharge) facility of Delhi Metro’s Smart Cards will now be possible through the Airtel Payments Bank, India's only profitable multi-segment Fintech operating at scale with a banking license. This new initiative by the Delhi Metro and Airtel Payments Bank is focused on contributing to the Government’s vision of Digital India and Financial Inclusion by taking digital transaction services to the doorstep of every Indian.
This new facility will be of great convenience to the commuters since this will allow them to use one more reliable option to recharge their smart cards through their mobile phones. The transactions will be completely safe and the card or net banking details will be saved only once by the App. Recharge through this facility will be fast and convenient.
Delhi Metro Smart Card users can recharge the smart card in three simple steps:
1. Select the Metro Recharge icon in the Bank section on the Airtel Thanks App.
2. Enter the DMRC Smart Card number, followed by the recharge amount and make the payment.
3. Tap the Smart Card on Add Value Machine at the metro station to sync the card before usage.
DMRC in the recent past has already launched various other initiatives to facilitate easy top up of smart cards/sale of tokens to avoid queues and save time at stations. This includes option of Smart Card Top up through TVMs, launch of Metro Combo cards with other banks, Credit/Debit card transaction facility at stations, Net banking using dmrcsmartcard.com, mobile e-wallets etc.
