New Railways app to aid booking unreserved, platform tickets

New Delhi: The Indian Railways on Friday launched facilities for booking of paperless unreserved tickets as well as platform tickets to cut queues at reservation counters.

Most of the new facilities are aimed at the Mumbai suburban sections to begin with where 75 lakh passengers use the local train services to commute.

The new services are in tune with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Digital India’ mission and seek to help passengers save time by booking tickets right at their home before traveling, Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu said as he launched the IT-enabled passenger services here.

The paperless platform ticket programme would cover the major sections in the Mumbai suburban sections, as well as New Delhi and Hazrat Nizamuddin stations here.

The minister also launched paperless season tickets on suburban sections of the Western Railway, Central Railway and between New Delhi and Palwal section of the Northern Railway.

Currency coin-cum-card-operated automatic ticket-vending machines at various suburban stations on the Central Railway and Western Railway were also launched on the occasion.
