Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation (LMRC) & Lucknow Nagar Nigam (LNN) today joined hands by signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for facilitation of payment of house/property taxes through ‘GoSmart’ card of Lucknow Metro at Metro Stations.
The MoU was signed in the presence of Shri Anil Garg, Divisional Commissioner, Lucknow & Chairman, Lucknow Smart City Ltd. and Shri Kumar Keshav, Managing Director/LMRC, along with other senior officers from both the organisations at the administrative headquarters of Lucknow Metro at Gomti Nagar.
“The main objective is to propagate the idea of smart travel for which LMRC is making every possible effort for facilitation of additional customer services for the benefit and convenience of the Metro commuters”, said Shri Kumar Keshav, Managing Director/LMRC.
On the occasion, Shri Anil Garg, Divisional Commissioner, Lucknow & Chairman, Lucknow Smart City Ltd. said “I compliment LMRC for executing this MoU in a very fast and in an efficient manner. This will now pave the way for the citizens towards a smarter way of life in Lucknow”.
This innovative initiative of integration of Smart Card for the payment of various house/property taxes has been done for the first time in India. According to the MoU, LMRC will facilitate the collection of tax payments of Nagar Nigam from its customers at its Metro Stations which will enable passengers to use their “GoSmart Card” to make payments for the property tax at ticket counters (TOMs). LMRC will then forward the collections along with information to the Lucknow Nagar Nigam.
Earlier, LMRC & BSNL had signed a similar kind of MoU for facilitation of customer services of its “GoSmart” card users so that the pre and post-paid bills of BSNL can be paid through the ‘GoSmart’ cards at Metro Stations.
