Amazon Pay announced the launch of Delhi Metro Smart Card recharge on Amazon.in. Customers using the Delhi Metro can recharge their cards in a convenient, cashless and safe manner. Customers can do so with minimum human contact by simply using the Amazon Pay tab on their Amazon shopping app or website.
To avail this facility, customers can click on the ‘Metro Recharge’ option under Amazon Pay tab and follow some simple, intuitive steps. After entering their metro card number, they can choose any amount between INR 100 – INR 2,000 to recharge their card. After successful payment, they need to tap the card at the automatic vending machine (AVM) at any Delhi Metro station and select “Top-Up” to add the balance to their card.
Mahendra Nerurkar, CEO, Amazon Pay, said, “As part of our commitment to our customers, we are constantly innovating and creating new experiences to make digital payments seamless across a variety of use cases. Commute is a very important aspect of daily lives of our customers and Delhi Metro is the lifeline for millions of daily commuters in Delhi-NCR. By enabling our customers to recharge their Delhi Metro cards in a contactless manner, we aim to make their lives more convenient, safe, cashless and secure.”
Speaking on the launch, Dr. Mangu Singh, Managing Director, Delhi Metro Rail Corporation said, “The initiative is in line with DMRC’s commitment towards supporting the digital drive to promote cashless transactions among Delhi Metro commuters, at a time when social distancing has become a new normal for everyone.”
