The automatic fare collection (AFC) gates — where passengers swipe their Metro smart cards — will now serve as recharge points too.
According to the report, If you want to avoid a queue or do not adequate cash, all you need to do is bring your smart card near the AFC gate and it will be recharged by an amount you had already specified. The money will be deducted from your bank account through electronic clearing.
To avail this facility, all you need to do is fill up a form authorising the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to top up the smart card by a certain amount from your bank account. Once you do that, your smart card will be recharged automatically whenever the card value goes below the specified limit.
