 120 INSTITUTIONS ENROLLED IN STUDENT CONCESSION SYSTEM OF METRO RAILWAY

Kolkata,Date: 21.03.2023

For the benefit of the students, Metro Railway has been giving concessions to the students of recognized schools (of West Bengal Board, CBSE, ICSE) and ITI students. Metro has been giving concessions to students upto 10+2 or equivalent level, since 2009 as per the stipulated rule (Railway Board’s Commercial Circular No.29 of dated 24.07.2009) in which students get 60% concessions.

Students of 120 recognized schools (West Bengal Board, CBSE and ICSE) and ITIs in and around Kolkata have been getting these concessions regularly. Any school/institution willing to avail this concession is required to apply first to Metro Railway Authority for enrolment. Once they are enrolled after fulfilling the criteria as per the rule, they are given concession books to distribute the concession forms to their registered students. Students need to show these forms duly signed and verified by the school authorities to the Station Master and after that Smart Cards are issued and recharged.

Since April, 2022, 64 recognized schools and ITIs have been given 79 concession books (each having 100 concession forms) to enable their students to avail concessions in Metro following stipulated procedure. Since last April, 2022, 3709 Student Smart Cards have been recharged and 2509 new Student Smart Cards have been issued till February,2023.
