With this, Mumbaikars will be able to use special debit or credit cards issued by banks under the RuPay scheme to book tickets across all transports in the city. The entire project, including the cost of setting up card tapping machines would cost a whopping Rs 200 crore.

“The system slates to work in a simple manner. Money will be transferred into these special cards through e-wallets and the commuter will then enter their start and end destinations in the card tapping machine. Once that is done, the money will be deducted from the card and a ticket will be issued”, the MRVC official said.

“Once the permission is given, the system will be installed on all railway stations and commuters can start using their transport cards”, he added.
