You no longer need to wait in line at the ticket windows or at the automated token dispensers to purchase Delhi Metro tickets. Since the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has released the smartphone app “DMRC TRAVEL” for creating paperless online mobile QR tickets for traveling throughout its network in Delhi and NCR, you can now purchase metro tickets from the comfort of your home. Customers of the Delhi Metro may now buy tickets directly from their Mobile.
Official sources claim that customers can download the app, sign up, purchase the ticket, and scan it at the gate all from their phones. The commuter must buy a new ticket from the customer service kiosk if their phone is stolen or dies during the trip.
Here is a complete step-by-step tutorial for purchasing an online Delhi Metro QR paperless ticket:
- Visit the Google Play store and download the “DMRC Tavel & Map Navigation App.” The app is only now accessible through the Play Store. The software will soon be accessible on the Apple Store, according to DMRC.

The software offers customers flexibility and convenience by supporting a range of payment options, including UPI, credit/debit cards, and wallets. Passengers can effortlessly finish the purchase within the app by selecting their chosen payment method.
A journey planner, fare calculator, station information, and smart card recharging are among the many passenger-focused features of this app. The App also displays interchange stations along the journey from point A to point B. Rebooking tickets for the same origin-destination and return trip is possible, as well as seeing transaction history.
Approximately 75% of DMRC commuters currently use smart cards, which is a little rise from 78% in May of the previous year. Around 70% of people were using smart cards at the time of the COVID-19 outbreak. Since the epidemic began, the DMRC has been preparing to phase out tokens.
