PRESS RELEASE

UPI PAYMENT BASED TICKETING SYSTEM INTRODUCED IN ASCRM MACHINES IN STATIONS OF BLUE LINE

Kolkata, Date: 23.05.2024

UPI Payment Based Ticketing System has been introduced in Automatic Smart Card Recharge Machines (ASCRM) in Mahanayak Uttam Kumar, Rabindra Sadan and Esplanade stations of Blue Line from today i.e. 23.05.2024. This Ticketing System has already been introduced at all the booking counters in stations of Green Line. As a result, commuters won’t have to tender the exact fare in currency notes and coins at these stations. Instead they would now be able to recharge their Smart Cards or buy tokens with the help of this system too.

It is to be mentioned that from 21.05.2024, ASCRM machines of Howrah, Howrah Maidan Metro stations of Green Line and Park Street Metro station of Blue Line got this facility for the benefits of the passengers.

Metro Railway authorities with the help of State Bank of India and Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS) have introduced this Unified Payments Interface (UPI) Based Ticketing System.

This facility will also be extended in other stations of Blue Line, Purple Line and Orange Line for the benefit of the commuters soon. Necessary arrangements for implementing this facility in these Corridors are being made.

Commuters have welcomed this new move of the Metro Authorities. Passengers’ response about this new UPI Payment Based Ticketing System has been very good today.
