Digital makeover: SMS new ticket as Railways may go paperless

The SMS tickets might also carry advertisements, so that the national transporter does not have to bear the cost of sending them. Railways has already started talking to advertising agencies in this regard.

The plan is to eventually phase out thousands of old printers and even schedule charts that are pasted on train coaches.

It will soon be the end of the road for printed railway tickets in the country.

Air-conditioned toilet facility at Pune railway station

PUNE: The Pune railway division recently started air-conditioned (AC) toilet facility at the Pune railway station on platform number one at Solapur end.

स्मार्टफोन पर मिलेगा ट्रेन का जनरल टिकट, जनवरी से मिलेगी ये फैसिलिटी

प्रतीकात्मक फोटो।

नई दिल्ली/भोपाल. अब ट्रेन का जनरल टिकट भी आप स्मार्टफोन से बुक कर सकेंगे। रेलवे नई फैसिलिटी जनवरी के पहले वीक से शुरू करेगा। इसके अगले फेज में मंथली सीजन टिकट यानी एमएसटी और प्लैटफॉर्म टिकट भी मोबाइल पर देने का प्लान है।

कुछ स्टेशनों पर चल रही योजना
- पायलट प्रोजेक्ट के तौर पर मुंबई और गाजियाबाद में मोबाइल पर जनरल टिकट दिए जा रहे हैं।
- रेलवे के अफसरों के अनुसार, अब इसे वेस्ट-सेंट्रल रेलवे के भोपाल और कोटा स्टेशन पर भी शुरू किया जाएगा।

एक फोन कॉल से निरस्त हो जाएगा आपका रेलवे टिकट

Indian railway will cancel your ticket on a phone call immediately

रेलवे नए वर्ष से यात्रियों को बड़ी सौगात देने जा रहा है। इसके अंतगर्त यात्रा टिकट अब फोन कॉल पर भी निरस्त हो सकेगा
नई दिल्ली। रेलवे नए वर्ष से यात्रियों को बड़ी सौगात देने जा रहा है। इसके अंतगर्त यात्रा टिकट अब फोन कॉल पर भी निरस्त हो सकेगा। इसके लिए यात्रियों को सिर्फ 139 नंबर पर कॉल करना होगा। हालांकि रिफंड लेने के लिए काउंटर पर ही जाना पडेग़ा। यह सुविधा 26 जनवरी से शुरू होगी।
असल में रेलवे ने रिफंड नियमों में कुछ दिन पूर्व बदलाव किया है। इसमें यह नियम जोड़ लिया गया कि ट्रेन आने के बाद अगर टिकट निरस्त नहीं कराया गया तो रिफंड नहीं मिलेगा। ऐसी स्थिति में अंतिम समय तक टिकट आरक्षित होने के इंतजार में रहने वालों को आर्थिक नुकसान हो रहा था। इसी को लेकर रेलवे ने फोन कॉल पर टिकट निरस्त कराने की सुविधा दी है।
