Delhi Metro and citibank launch co-branded Transit Credit Card

Citibank India and the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) announced the launch of India`s first co-branded, `2-in-1` transit credit card, the Delhi Metro Citibank Credit Card on 7th May 2008. The first of its kind in India, the card combines the benefits of a Metro Pass with the advantages of a Citibank Credit Card, and will be available to customers.

This new product is a pioneering initiative introduced by DMRC and Citibank India, to offer enhanced value and convenience to Delhi`s residents. In addition to the exciting features of a Citibank credit card and the existing Metro Smart card, the Delhi Metro Citibank Credit Card is also unique in several other ways. The reward points accumulated on this card can be redeemed for Metro rides, at the Citibank point-of-sale terminals, presently installed at Rajeev Chowk, Kashmere Gate, Barakhamba, Pitampura, Rajouri Garden and Dwarka Mor Metro stations and soon to spread across other stations as well. Additionally, it offers double reward points for Metro spending and will not require the mandatory security deposit of Rs 50.

It is India`s first credit card that doubles as a contact-less access card for the Delhi Metro stations, allowing customers "tap and go" entry into DMRC stations. In addition to convenience, the Delhi Metro Citibank Credit card will offer several benefits, including exclusive shopping deals and discounts in Delhi and the NCR, fuel surcharge waivers at Indian Oil outlets and other privileges associated with a Citibank Credit Card. The special "Delhi Delights" feature of this card offers unique deals from some of the biggest brands in Delhi, including Dominos, Fun Cinemas, Nirula`s, Bercos, India Today and VLCC.

  • 10 per cent discount on travel fare paid with the `2-in-1` card
  • 2 Reward Points for every Rs. 100 spent on the Metro, 1 Reward Point for every Rs 100 spent elsewhere
