Pamphlets having details of the new feeder bus routes were also distributed among the participants. NMRC also explained the features of the unique Smart Card and other ticketing options like QR paper ticket and Mobile App generated QR code for travelling.
Connectivity between Sector 51 of the Aqua Line and Sector 52 station of DMRC’s Blue Line was also explained as many people were unaware of the dedicated pathway built by NMRC between the two stations and the free e – rickshaw service available for passengers on this stretch.
NMRC also assured that E – Rickshaws and feeder buses can be provided at designated intervals to facilitate the movement of employees working in NSEZ. Besides this, NMRC offered its stations premises to the companies for organising various CSR activities
