Kolkata Metro rolls out UPI in all stations

Kolkata Metro Railway has implemented the UPI payment system across all stations along the North-South corridor, extending the convenience of digital transactions to commuters. According to a statement released by Metro Railway Kolkata on Sunday, all Automatic Smart Card Recharge Machines (ASCRM) along the Blue Line (Dakshineswar-New Garia) now offer this facility, simplifying the process of purchasing tokens or recharging smart cards for passengers.

Previously introduced in the Howrah Maidan-Esplanade and Sector V-Sealdah corridors of the East-West Metro, this UPI-based ticketing system is now available at every station along the North-South corridor, connecting the city's outskirts. The system allows commuters to easily select their destination station by typing the first letter on the screen, followed by a selection from the auto-populated list. Subsequently, the payment page appears, offering the option of UPI Payment. Passengers can complete the transaction by scanning the QR code using their smartphones.

This initiative has already been implemented successfully at all stations of Green Line 1 and Green Line 2, garnering positive feedback from Metro users. In response to this, authorities are considering extending this convenient ticketing option to the Ruby-New Garia and Joka-Taratala sections in the near future, aiming to further enhance the commuting experience for passengers.

The implementation of this Unified Payments Interface (UPI) Based Ticketing System has been made possible through collaboration between Metro Railway authorities, State Bank of India, and the Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS).
