Due to the shortage of changes and inability of commuters to tender exact fares, it has been decided to increase the minimum Metro Smart Card value from present Rs. 120/- to Rs. 150/- from 1st June, 2023 (Thursday). Security deposit of the Smart Card will remain same Rs. 80/-. But the ride value will increase from present Rs. 40/- to Rs. 70/-. Metro authorities add 10% value to this ride value of 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 present Rs. 44/- as the ride value. Recharge values of the Smart Card will remain unchanged.

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 of old one.
