Waiting in long queues to buy the Delhi Metro tokens or to get the card recharged can be a tedious task. And if you’re not from the city (or, for that matter, from India), downloading multiple apps only to know more about the city and its public transport does not make much sense.
Hence, in a major move, the Delhi Tourism and Transportation Development Corporation (DTTDC) has brought the Metro Card Recharge facilities on the Delhi Tourism app, making it easier for international passengers to recharge their smart cards and learn more about the city with just one single app!

According to a report in India Today, the new facility will be extremely helpful for foreign tourists who aren’t too well-versed with the city and its routes. The app will provide them with all the information they need about the city and its popular spots, along with metro routes and the facility to recharge their card.
How to recharge the metro card
According to India.com, all that the passengers need to do in order to recharge their metro card is:
- Visit the ‘Travel within Delhi’ section on the app
- Click on ‘Metro’
- Select the recharge tab
Once this is done, the user will be redirected to the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) website to continue with the smart card recharge process.
Talking about this development, a senior official from the DTTDC told news agency PTI, “We strive to give tourists from all over the world the best experience in Delhi. So with the help of the Delhi Tourism App’s metro recharge feature, tourists can plan their complete journey with one app. This feature enables users to enhance their tourism experience by providing them with the hassle-free facility of recharging their metro cards through the app while exploring Delhi’s tourist hotspots,” reports India.com.
