Mumbai Metro launch Paytm "RuPay Transit Card (NCMC Card)":

Paytm has launched a new Transit Card for Mumbaikars which will enable the people of Mumbai to make payments for multiple purposes travelling via Mumbai metro, buses and trains. The Transit card will let the user make all-in-one payments from a single Paytm card.

Paytm Payments Bank Limited (PPBL) has announced its partnership with the Mumbai Metro One Private Limited (MMOPL) to launch the new Paytm Transit Card. The new card will enable the people of Mumbai to make payments for multiple purposes, including travelling via Mumbai metro, buses and trains. Also, the new Transit card will enable the user to make payments online as well as in the offline market.

The all-in-one card from Paytm has been developed in line with the Government of India’s NCMC project. The card could be further used to pay the parking charges and at toll plazas as well.

PPBL has developed a completely digital process to help citizens to apply for a new Paytm Transit card. Following a successful application, users have the option to get the card delivered to their doorstep or purchase it from designated sales points.

Also, all recharge and transactions can be tracked digitally as the prepaid card is directly linked to the Paytm Wallet, where users can just top up the wallet to use the new transit card and users will not be needed to create any separate account for the same.

Paytm Transit Card is the PPBL’s second product in the mass transit category post FASTags, which has reportedly witnessed a massive deployment across the nation. Last year, Paytm Payments Bank became the first bank in India to achieve the milestone of issuing more than 1 crore FASTags on cars.

Moreover, the bank is also India’s largest acquirer of Toll Plazas for the National Electronic Toll Collection (NETC) program which offers an interoperable nationwide toll payment solution in the country. The bank has enabled around 280 toll plazas across the national and state highways to collect toll charges cashless.

Last month, Paytm started to offer train ticketing services with a new feature named ‘Live Train Status’, which enables the user to check the live location of the train and the platform where the train will arrive at certain stoppages.

Also, the digital payments and financial services company integrated ‘Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana' (PMJAY) or PM Ayushman Bharat Health Insurance, enabling the users to check their eligibility and avail benefits accordingly. The move has been aligned with the Indian government’s mission of transforming the healthcare segment digitally.

Currently, No DMRC RuPay cards yet but i think in future Paytm will launch NCMC Card for DMRC because all NCMC contract in Delhi metro owned by Paytm payments bank.

But Noida metro offer SBI NCMC RuPay Cards. 

Kochi Metro and Bangalore Metro (Namma Metro) also offer Axis NCMC RuPay cards.

Officially, no info available about complimentary airport lounges but i saw some youtube videos, some people use Kochi Metro and Bangalore Metro RuPay NCMC Cards for complimentary airport lounges.

No info i found about Noida metro SBI NCMC RuPay Cards.

This is RuPay card, work everywhere.

For NCMC offline contactless payment upto Rs200 - only very few Metros, buses, suburban railways, toll, parking area etc currently accept NCMC payment.

Today's news - NPCI sets Oct 31 as deadline to activate offline payments on RuPay cards -

I already posted few days ago - All RuPay Debit/Prepaid Cards to be fully NCMC enabled by 31st of Oct, 2022 -
