All metro stations in Delhi-NCR to have ATMs and it is as convenient as it can get!
ATMs help us breathe a sigh of relief whenever we are short on cash and it can be really hectic and inconvenient to actually go out in search of one, specially when at a metro station!
You might lose your line, get late, be compelled to purchase another ticket or swipe your card again and what not- the inconveniences are limitless!
What's The News?
You don't have to get out of metro stations in Delhi and NCR to withdraw cash from the ATMs anymore.
Delhi Metro Rail Corporation is planning to install at least one ATM machine on every station on its network.
The move is comprehended to benefit daily passengers while providing revenue for the Corporation!
A DMRC official was also quoted as saying, "Currently, 175 stations already have one or more ATMs, but with the rapid expansion in 2018, the idea is to cover the entire network with the facility in 2019.”
Last month, DMRC had commenced a service in partnership with cab aggregators- Ola and Uber, to provide connectivity for commuters through its stands at the stations!
Another DMRC official stated, “DMRC has called Expression of Interest for licensing open space to Scheduled Commercial Banks and non-bank entities in India under Companies Act 1956 for the installation of ATMs!”
Presently the Delhi Metro spans over 317 km with over 200 stations and this was a much-needed facility!
We are honestly expecting this facility to make our lives easier so that even if we have 99 problems, this shouldn’t be one of them!
For most of us from Noida, the Metro is nothing short of a lifeline. A saviour in times of need, the metro has connected various parts of Noida to mainstream Delhi. Now, however, you're going to have to take a different look at these metro trains, because you can rent them for throwing parties!
Granted, that isn't really the first thought that comes to mind when one says either party or metro, but it is certainly something interesting. From now, one can book a metro coach on our favourite Aqua Line metro and celebrate any occasion. So read on to find out how it's going to go down and everything else you need to know.
What's the update?
Ever wanted to party in a Noida Metro Train coach? Well, it seems that now you can, with NMRC's latest initiative. The idea was taken from similar initiatives in Jaipur, Gujarat and Gurugram's Rapid Metro, where train coaches can be rented out for parties. Incidentally, no other foreign country implements this rule.
One can book coaches on operational as well as stationary trains. To ensure that the average commuter isn't held up, only up to 4 coaches can be booked by a party. For booking coaches, you're going to have to pay a security deposit of ₹20,000 and then ₹5,000 to ₹10,000 each hour. Paying extra will get you a decorated coach from the NMRC, so that you don't have to do anything.
In order to actually book a coach, or four, all you have to do is head over to the NMRC's website and apply at least 15 days prior to the date of engagement. Following that, the NMRC will look into the matter and you can get partying in your metro coach within no time!
The NMRC is constantly coming up with innovative ways to generate revenue from Noida Metro. Earlier, the metro stations opened up for film and television shooting. In the near future, we expect the revenue to help improve and expand Noida Metro.
