METRO’S SMART CARD TO COST Rs. 150 FROM 1ST JUNE, 2023

Kolkata, 29th May 2023

Due to the shortage of changes and the inability of commuters to tender exact fares, it has been decided to increase the minimum Metro Smart Card value from the present Rs. 120/- to Rs. 150/- from 1st June 2023 (Thursday). The security deposit of the Smart Card will remain the same i.e. Rs. 80/-. But the ride value will increase from the present Rs. 40/- to Rs. 70/-. Metro authorities add a 10% value to this ride value of the Metro Smart Card. As a result, from 1st, June 2023 if a Metro commuter purchases a Smart Card at the cost of Rs. 150/- he/she will get Rs. 77/- instead of the present Rs. 44/- as the ride value. The recharge values of the Smart Card will remain unchanged.

Shri Kausik Mitra, Chief Public Relations Officer, Metro Railway has said that the shortage of changes is a pan-India problem. This decision will help to address this problem being faced at the booking counters of the Metro stations and Metro commuters will be benefitted from it. This is applicable only for NEW SMART CARD, not for the old one

In order to make the commuters aware of this change in Metro Smart Card value, frequent announcements are being made at all Metro stations. Notifications are also on display at Metro booking counters of all stations.
