We are confident that this integration will encourage more commuters to choose the Delhi metro as their preferred mode of travel," Vikas Kumar, Managing Director of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC), said in a statement.

What are key features of WhatsApp ticketing service?

  1. Up to a maximum of six QR tickets can be generated by a user in a single time
  2. Tickets can be booked between 6:00 am to 9:00 pm for all lines and from 4:00 am to 11:00 pm for the Airport Line (Orange Line)
  3. Ticket cancellations are not allowed in WhatsApp ticketing
  4. A marginal convenience fee will be applied to transactions made via credit/debit card, while no convenience fee will be charged for UPI-based transactions
