IndusInd Bank launches debit card with built-in Delhi Metro chip

IndusInd Bank and Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) launched a hybrid card that works both as a smart card for metro travelers as well as a debit and ATM card.

IndusInd Bank customers can use the card as a Delhi Metro Smart Card in addition to all other regular debit card transactions, the bank said. Smart cards are used to pay metro fares wirelessly with a wave.

The new debit card, powered by Mastercard, will also work at DMRC Parking lots, feeder buses etc.

The card has a Delhi Metro Transit chip embedded within, along with the secured Debit Card Chip.

The customers can choose from the multiple modes to top-up their cards via IndusInd Bank ATMs, IndusMobile App & NetBanking, SMS, Auto Top-up etc. for recharging the Delhi Metro Transit chip, instead of standing in queue.

“The users of this card can also get their smart cards auto topped up at AFC Gates across the network which will help them to have seamless travel without worrying about top-up from time to time,” said Mangu Singh – Managing Director, DMRC.

“DMRC commuters will have the unique facility of topping up their Metro smart card directly from their account at any of the IndusInd Bank ATMs,” added Ritesh Raj Saxena, who heads the  Savings, Digital & Payments Business at ‎ IndusInd Bank.
