This program have track of all the data relevant to customer and their cards, so the customer can get into any station to recharge the card. The database is centralized so that it can be accessible in all stations.
Main aim of this software application is to computerize concept of smart card issuing system. Once this system is implemented smart card issuing and recharge can be controlled easily.
This application can be used by any metro train station to issue the smart card to the customers. Apart from smart cards customers also can check train timings.
Existing system is a manual system where people should visit metro stations and get recharge or take new metro card. In this process a person should take photos and upload details to database. In this process we need time and human resource.
