With this new feature, commuters can get the mobile QR ticket on the Paytm app under the ‘Metro’ section, by simply entering the station of entry and destination station on the day of the journey, Delhi Metro said in a notification.

“Passengers can just hold their Smartphone in front of the QR code scanner of the Automatic Fare Collection (AFC) gates at both entry and exit stations to proceed with the journey," the notification read.
