जुलाई से काउंटर से भी मिलेंगे रेलवे के तत्काल प्रीमियम टिकट



रेलवे का तत्काल प्रीमियम टिकट अब स्टेशन काउंटर से भी मिलेगा। जुलाई से नई व्यवस्था लागू होगी। रेलवे ने यात्रियों की सहूलियत के लिए तत्काल प्रीमियम टिकट की सेवा शुरू की। अब तक ये टिकट केवल आईआरसीटीसी से बुकिंग पर ही मिलता था। काउंटर पर जाने वालों को इससे परेशानी होती थी। यात्रियों ने हर बार प्रतिक्रिया में प्रीमियम तत्काल काउंटर से देने की मांग उठाई। अब यात्री काउंटर से भी टिकट ले सकेंगे।

रेलवे बोर्ड ने इसके लिए निर्देश जारी कर दिया है। क्रिस को साफ्टवेयर में जरूरी बदलाव के निर्देश दिए गए हैं। जिससे पीआरएस काउंटर में भी प्रीमियम तत्काल की बर्थ की अलग से फीडिंग होगी।

Railways to allow card payments at ticket counters

The Indian Railways is working on a mega plan to tap the cash-less, electronic payment system.

Around half of all passenger tickets currently sold are via the cash-less mode through Indian Railway Catering and Tourism (IRCTC). The new plan involves covering the remaining half of the volume of tickets sold through the reservation counters under the electronic net.
