Bengaluru: The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) has extended the validity of the Namma Metro ‘Varshika’ smart card from one year to ten years.

In a release, the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited informed, “On the account of nearly five-and-a-half months of suspension of metro operations due to the pandemic, some of the commuters who could not top-up their cards are experiencing problems due to expiry of the validity of smart cards.”

“To avoid inconvenience to the traveling public, BMRCL has extended the validity period of all the issued smart cards, which was for a one-year period from the last top-up, to 10 years, i.e. September 19, 2030,” it added.

BMRCL also enabled card recharge options through net banking on the website and the Namma Metro app.

The BMRCL also removed the existing stipulation for the convenience of commuters who needed to reactivate the card after one year paying Rs 20.
