DMRC had introduced online recharge option last year, making refills easy and convenient for daily commuters. As of Friday, now you can use your Paytm wallet to recharge your Delhi Metro card; this can either be done through the Paytm app or website, or you can select it as a payment option on the DMRC website.
It is an effort to reduce long queues at the recharge counters and make travelling convenient for 2.3 million commuters, as mentioned on its latest blog post.
On the DMRC website, you can now choose to pay using your credit or debit cards, net banking, or with the Paytm wallet. The best thing about Paytm wallet is the cashback scheme, which currently returns upto INR100 using promo code metro100.
By charging your metro card online, you don’t need to stand in queue to refill it before journeys, but since it’s not directly linked to your Paytm wallet, you will still have to remember to refill the card.
To recharge it via the Paytm app, just swipe through the different tabs until you find Metro. There, you will have to choose between Mumbai (where the recharge service was already offered) or Delhi, and then you will have to key in the card number – this is printed on the back of the card.
The recharge process is very simple, you should be able to recharge the card even when you’re in the middle of a metro ride, which is a good feature for all the commuters.
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation has also an app called ‘Offer World’, which allows you to check the balance, top it up online and offers for your Metro card.[su_box title=”More From DSIM” box_color=”#c7c7c7″ title_color=”#000000″ radius=”5″]1) Delhi School of Internet Marketing (DSIM) Completes 5 Glorious Years!
