New Delhi: The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), in association with the SBI Card, has launched the ‘Delhi Metro – SBI Card’, a multipurpose credit card for the benefit of Delhi Metro commuters. The ‘Delhi Metro – SBI Card’ has been jointly launched by DMRC’s Managing Director Dr Mangu Singh and SBI Card’s MD & CEO Ashwini Kumar Tewari in the presence of other senior officials from Delhi Metro and SBI Card.

This multipurpose ‘Delhi Metro – SBI Card’ will allow users to use it as a smart card with auto-top up facility whenever the balance of the card goes below Rs 100. The credit card facility will automatically recharge a top-up value of Rs 200 to the card from the user’s linked card or bank account. In addition, this combo card can also be used for all regular credit card transactions.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Singh said, “This initiative is in line with the 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 way of life. We believe that this ‘Delhi Metro – SBI Card’ can serve as an essential instrument in facilitating safe Metro commute in these pandemic times.’’
