By PTI  www.financialexpress.com

Stepping up efforts to reduce usage of paper, Railways have decided to introduce paperless mobile ticketing system in premium trains like Rajdhani and Shatabdi services.

Currently, the paperless ticketing system is operational in unreserved ticketing for commuters in Egmore and Tambram suburban section in Chennai on a pilot basis.

“Our aim is to extend the paperless ticketing system in both reserved and unreserved segment in phases. While the system is at present operational in a suburban section in Chennai, we will cover all suburban services soon and then it will be extended to reserved segment also,” Railway Board Member (Traffic) Ajay Shukla said here today.

He said passengers of the premier trains like Rajdhani and Shatabdi will be the first to have this paperless mobile ticketing facility.

This system is available through a mobile application developed by the Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS), Railways’ software wing. More info
