IRCTC Partners DMRC to offer QR code-based Delhi metro tickets on ticketing platform
The MoU is signed as part of the "One India-One Ticket" initiative
The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), the official online ticketing partner of the Indian Railways has inked an agreement with the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) to provide QR code-based metro tickets through its online platform.
The MoU is signed as part of the "One India-One Ticket" initiative and is set to benefit the passengers of both IRCTC and DMRC.
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) introduced the QR code-based paper ticket system on May 8, describing the development as a move towards a "more transparent and human intervention-free mechanism".
The concept of issuing tokens will be gradually phased out with the introduction of these more transparent and human intervention-free and cashless mechanisms thereby facilitating more convenient, seamless, time-saving and error-fee travel, the DMRC said in a statement on May 8.
Passengers will be allowed to enter the metro network within 60 minutes from the time of the issuance of such a ticket.
If a passenger fails to enter the system through the ticket within 60 minutes, the ticket will become invalid, the DMRC said.
Recently DMRC launched a dedicated mobile app for its passengers with the name 'DMRC TRAVEL' for generating convenient and hassle-free mobile QR tickets for travelling across its network.
