The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) today launched Delhi Metro – SBI card. DMRC and SBI Card have come together for the initiative. For the benefit of the Delhi Metro commuters, this multipurpose credit card has been launched. As per DMRC, this multipurpose Delhi Metro SBI card will allow its users to use it as a smart card. The card will have the facility of auto-top up whenever the balance of the card goes below ₹100. As a part of the credit card facility, the card will be recharged automatically with a top up value of ₹ 200 from the linked card or bank account of the user. Apart from this facility, users can use this combo card for all regular credit card transactions.
As per DMRC Mangu Singh, the initiative resonates with its commitment towards supporting the digital drive. Among the commuters of Delhi Metro, this will encourage cashless transactions. In these COVID-19 pandemic times, the multipurpose Delhi Metro SBI card can serve as an important instrument in facilitating safe Metro commute. As per MD and CEO of SBI Card Ashwini Kumar Tewari, the multipurpose card offers an improved daily metro travel experience to a number of Delhi Metro commuters. It also offers a rewarding experience on their daily purchases. The SBI card has joined hands with Delhi Metro to put up kiosks at about 100 known metro stations.
At metro stations, Delhi Metro commuters can apply for this multipurpose card. Apart from this, they can also apply online by means of the e-apply platform on the SBI Card portal.
