Mumbai: On first Monday, only seven mobile railway tickets sold

Even as the railways plan the speedy implementation of its mobile ticketing infrastructure across suburban stations, commuter activists and transport experts complained that the compulsion of carrying a printed ticket was defeating the purpose of the mobile system.

The much awaited mobile ticketing system was commissioned for suburban trains on Saturday. But while 46 passengers had booked tickets on their phones then, only seven participated in the process on Monday, the first work day since the launch.

Only two commuters on Central Railway (CR) and five on Western Railway (WR) booked tickets on the new system.

“Despite the mobile ticketing system, commuters are getting no respite from long queues (for print outs). If long distance trains allow SMS validation, why not suburban trains?” said commuter activist Aniket Ghamandi.

“Seats are reserved on long distance trains. If two people claim the same berth, it can be verified easily, but for unreserved train journeys, there is no method to check the authenticity of the passengers. People can easily forward SMSes to each other,” said railway official on condition of anonymity.

There have also been complaints that the minimum denomination needed to activate the railway e-wallet software was Rs100.

While suburban tickets can be booked using the railway-wallet with a mobile phone, commuters are expected to collect a printed ticket from automatic ticket vending machines (ATVM) installed at select stations.

In three days, more than 5,000 people had downloaded the mobile app, but the cumbersome process before the start of the journey appears to have put off passengers.

“Why would I book tickets on the mobile phone if I still have to visit the ticketing counter for everything? I might as well go get myself a regular ticket from the counter or through an ATVM,” said Rajeshri Pradhan, an engineering student from Andheri.

Currently, the mobile ticketing system is available only at Dadar station, but authorities said it will be commissioned for other stations including CST, Thane, Churchgate, Borivli and others by the weekend.

Eatables illegally sneaked out of railway canteens

Despite not being allowed to sell on platforms, rly premises, operator is making a fast buck by selling food to commuters since six months

The railway authorities have ended up with egg on their faces. Right under the nose of divisional railway manager (DRM) office, the railway canteen operator has been selling food — meant only for employees - at railway platforms illegally since the last six months.

As per rules, the canteen operators do not have the right to sell food stuff at the platform or station premises. However, the vendors of the canteen — located inside the DRM office premises — carry the cooked food in a tray and sell it illegally on the platforms. As canteen workers are dressed in railway uniforms, commuters consider them to be legal vendors.

"The canteen should provide service only for railway staff. However, this illegal activity is going on for last six months. We have complained many times but no action has been taken," a senior railway official told Mirror.

Surprisingly, a meeting of all head of departments takes place at the DRM office, every Monday. However, it seems that no official has noticed yet the canteen operators openly carry food to the railway platform.

"Obviously, senior officials are indirectly supporting this activity. Each vendor allowed to sell stuff on platforms has a proper batch number. The railway authority regularly takes action against illegal hawkers on the premises and collects a fine. But they are reluctant to take action against their own contractor," the official added.


The quality of the food is also inferior. Many employees admitted that they have stopped buying food from the canteen due to this.

"They do not even maintain basic hygiene norms. We cannot stand in the canteen for over a minute. Staff members have started ordering food from outside. However, the contractor is not bothered as he is earning good money from commuters," said one of the employees of the Pune Railway Division.

On the other hand, when Mirror informed Y K Singh, spokesperson, Pune Railway Division, about the issue, he said, "We have received many complaints regarding the canteen contractor and found out that he has been selling food items illegally on platforms. We have sent him a notice just two days ago. A strict action will be taken soon."
