DMRC uses one of the most advanced Automatic Fare Collection (AFC) systems in the world which provides real times data of fare collection and passenger flow. The system uses contact less smart cards for multiple journeys and contact less smart tokens for single journeys. The AFC lab is equipped with the actual entry/exit gates, Ticket Operations Machines (TOMs), AFC computers, card readers etc for hands on training to AFC system maintenance staff as well as the station staff who operates the system at station level. Recently the Automatic Vending Machines have also been added in the AFC lab. The lab facilitates real time working conditions and hence boosts confidence of the staff before actual deployment on job.
