New Delhi: In a bid to make buying metro tokens more convenient for commuters, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) is going to install LED screens at each ticket counter to display real-time transaction details, along with host of other information.
The project will first be implemented on the Violet Line (ITO-Escorts Mujesar), where 32 inch to 38 inch LED monitors will be installed at an estimated 148 ticketing counters.
“The screens will display metro-related information in both Hindi and English that may from time-to-time. It will also be utilised for displaying dynamic transaction details of ticketing counters,” said a metro official, adding that the information will be displayed without audio.
The DMRC plans to outsource this project, for which a tender has already been floated. According to the proposal, the licensee will have to procure, supply, install, operate and maintain the digital screens at ticketing counters. In return, the licensee will get advertising rights.
While ticket counters at the existing 27 stations on the Violet Line will get this facility, the move will also be extended to upcoming stations on the Heritage Line, including Lal Qila, Jama Masjid and Delhi Gate.
