10 Metro Stations in Delhi will go ‘cashless’ from January 1 to Encourage People to Embrace Centre’s Vision of Cashless Economy

New Delhi, December 24, 2016: Ten stations of the Delhi Metro will go “cashless” from January 1 letting commuters recharge smart cards and buy tokens using digital platforms.

DMRC Chief Mangu Singh said people will have the option to pay through mobile wallets such as Paytm in this regard.

“The cashless transactions for token and smart card purchase or top up at these stations can be done through Paytm by using QR-code, which will be displayed at token counters or customer care centre of these stations,” Singh said.

However, initially, at least one counter will have the option of cash.

“These stations have 70 percent or more smart card users as a result of which cash transactions here are moderate in comparison to other stations and have adequate mobile connectivity as well,” an official said.
