National Common Mobility Cards at Bangalore Metros station

The city’s Metro network is finally linked with the National Common Mobility Card (NCMC). As the rollout started on Thursday, 30 March 2023, Bangalore Metropolitan Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL) said it had a slow first day of issuing NCMCs because of the minimum KYC requirement.

These cards will be available at any Metro station ticket sales counter and at RBL Bank branches in the city. The card can be used for booking journeys on Namma Metro and also for other Metro or public transport services already compliant with the NCMC system.

While no other utility in Bengaluru has onboarded NCMC as of now, BMTC is said to be planning to do so. This system is in place in Mumbai, Delhi, and Kochi.

How to purchase one?

Commuters can purchase NCMC cards by submitting KYC forms available at Metro ticket counters or bank branches. The cards will cost Rs 100, and Rs 50 will go towards recharging it.

Buyers can also get the card by submitting KYC details through or the Namma ONGO mobile app. These passengers will receive a registration number that they can produce at the ticket counter of a Metro station and procure NCMC without filling out forms at the spot. BMRCL authorities said they are still working out how and when the balance from old Metro cards be transferred to NCMCs.
