Delhi Metro continues its unwavering commitment to enhancing the ‘ease of booking tickets’ for travellers across its extensive network. In its latest initiative, Delhi Metro proudly introduces an additional user-friendly option for commuters by launching QR code-based ticketing facility through the Paytm Mobile App.
This innovative facility was inaugurated by Dr. Vikas Kumar, the Managing Director of DMRC, in the distinguished presence of Mr. Abhay Sharma, the Chief Business Officer at Paytm, at the iconic Metro Bhawan.
With this new feature, commuters can get the mobile QR ticket on the Paytm app under the ‘Metro’ section, by simply entering the station of entry and destination station on the day of the journey. Passengers can just hold their Smartphone in front of the QR code scanner of the Automatic Fare Collection (AFC) gates at both entry and exit stations to proceed with the journey. Earlier this facility was available only on the Airport Express Line.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Vikas Kumar, MD/DMRC said, “Introduction of this QR-based ticketing for all corridors of Delhi Metro through Paytm will facilitate efficient and hassle-free movement for lakhs of metro commuters in the National Capital. In the recent past, we have taken a host of measures to facilitate digital ticketing showing our commitment to the “Digital India” initiative, aimed at providing government services electronically with improved online infrastructure and inclusivity”.
On this occasion, Mr. Abhay Sharma, Chief Business Officer, Paytm said, “As the pioneer of QR code based payments, we aim to offer convenience and ease of digital ticketing to metro commuters, helping them save time. Using this facility, Delhi Metro Rail passengers will be able to skip the queues to buy tickets. We continue to strive to bring innovative smart mobility and payment solutions for Indians.”
DMRC is continuously moving towards the diversification of ticket procurement channels through various digital modes, including UPI, Credit/Debit cards, net banking and more. DMRC is committed to simplifying and modernising the ticket booking process, ensuring passengers have a convenient and hassle-free experience.
In recent times, DMRC has rolled out multiple initiatives such as QR ticketing via the Mobile App, Ticket Vending Machines, Ticket Windows, WhatsApp etc., all of which accept popular digital payment methods.
DMRC requests our esteemed customers to use these easy to manage digital means of booking tickets from the comfort of their homes or workplaces which are easier, faster and convenient and don’t require any visit to ticket counters/stand in queues.
