Balance Management

Your One Pune Card can hold an offline balance on Card Chip for travel / ticketing payment at the metro. As a result, the card would have separate balances as stated below:

  • Balance - The amount loaded on your card after all fees & charges have been deducted.
  • Chip Balance - The amount set aside for your metro gate Tap & Pay transactions, maximum Chip Balance can be ₹2000, according to current guidelines.
  • Card Balance - The amount available on the card excluding Chip Balance that can be utilized for retail purchases (POS and E-commerce). Card Balance = Total Balance - Chip Balance.
Reason for bifurcation of Total Balance:
  • Balance - To restrict the amount of money accessible on your card for offline transactions. This is done to protect the remaining money in your Total Balance and reduce liability to fraudulent activities if the card is lost. The Chip Balance cannot be restored/refunded if the card is lost.
  • Card Balance - Allows you to spend your money on all your regular transactions on E-commerce and POS.
How can you reload your Balances?
  • A. When you reload your Card at the Metro station counter.
    • Total Balance - Gets updated with the amount refilled. (minus fees & charges)
