CM Rupani said workers now have the option to either use these online platforms or personally visit the common service centre to get themselves registered.
The new measure besides ensuring zero risk of coronavirus infection will enhance the efficiency of the transport department bringing convenience for people.
After entering their Metro Smart card number, they can choose any amount between Rs 100 to Rs 2000 to recharge their smart cards.
The initiative, for which the Corporation partnered with ICICI in 2018, was initially billed as an integrated option to pay for civic services.
The cards will be linked to the existing Education Management and Information System.
In a relief for commuters, Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) is now permitting topping up of cards inside Metro stations, using debit or credit cards.
BMRCL had increased the top up offered on the cards from Rs 1,500 to Rs 3,000 for the cards from February 2018 so that office goers can top up just once a month.
