Delhi Metro has made navigation quite easy for people in the bustling city. The Metro system runs on cards and tokens, which you must buy to enter the premises and board the Metro.

Although it would be quite easier for you to check the Delhi Metro card balance while sitting comfortably in your homes or offices, you cannot do this online. As per Delhi Metro’s frequently asked questions (FAQs), “No, you cannot check your card balance online.”

This means to check the card balance; you will have to visit the Ticket Reader cum Add Value Machines (TR CUM AVM) installed in the Metro stations. Press the card in the space provided and see your Metro card balance on the screen.

However, DMRC provides other features you can access online, including recharging the metro card.
