Good news for Delhi Metro commuters! India’s long-awaited first metro-specific virtual shopping app is expected to launch this month. A vast variety of e-shopping options will be available when riding metro trains thanks to this new app. The launch’s precise day and hour are not yet known.
Last month, a senior Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) official told FinancialExpress.com, “The app is expected to be launched by August 2023.”
Metro users will be able to order a variety of goods and services from inside the train and pick up their orders at the destination stations thanks to the “Momentum 2.0” app. This mobile application will initially be made available at a few carefully chosen network points.
In the first phase, the virtual stores will be installed in 21 stations. Speaking to FinancialExpress.com, a senior DMRC official said, “Initially, 21 stations will be covered for the launch and based on the performance/assessment, the scope is there to expand to all stations across the network.” These stations are located across Blue Line, Pink Line, Green Line and Red Line.
Of these, 10 stations with virtual stores will be available on the Blue Line, while 3 stations on the Pink Line, 3 stations on the Green Line and five stations on the Red Line.
These stations are – Barakhamba Road, Vaishali, Kaushambi, Preet Vihar, Nirman Vihar, Mayur Vihar Phase 1, IP Extension, Karkardooma Court, Sector 52 Noida, Karol Bagh, Dwarka Mor, Ashok Park Main, Inderlok, Pitampura, Pulbangash, Mundka, Peeragarhi, Welcome, Punjabi Bagh West, Dilshad Garden and Sector 62 Noida.
