Indian Railways May Close Reservation Ticket Printing Soon

Indian Railways is planning to make a big change in reservation ticket services. After the lockdown, Railways may stop the paper printing of reservation tickets for passenger trains in the country.

Railway has already been working on ways to integrate eight of its services into one central service ‘Indian Railway Management Service’ after getting approval for restructuring from the Union Cabinet last year. Railways have received proposals for several changes from different zones if the proposal is accepted by Indian railways; your rail journey will change in future.

 

Reservation tickets may be available only on mobile

These proposals include a suggestion to stop ticket printing and get tickets checked through RPF. There is also a proposal that the airport-like system should be implemented in railways. It is also proposed to make the railway reservations paperless so that tickets could be sent to passengers on mobile or email. Passengers could also print their tickets from home. Railways could not give reservation ticket on printed paper. The proposals include the merger of the key posts of the accounts, commercial, electrical, mechanical, engineering, medical, personal, operating, store, signal and telecommunications departments and other positions.
