With a view to facilitate convenient booking of reserved and unreserved tickets by passengers through cashless modes of payment viz. Credit/Debit cards even at the ticket booking counters, it has been decided to install 10,000 POS (Point of Sale) (Swpie) machines at the PRS (Passenger Reservation System) and UTS counters (including Suburban stations). Following procedure is proposed with regard to cancellation of the tickets booked through POS machines.
1. Cancellation cum refund procedure for UTS/PRS tickets booked using SBI POS for payment:
Refund of PRS/UTS tickets shall be done using the offline process as

detailed below:
i) The offline process of refund shall be followed in case of tickets booked using SBI POS for payment which means that the refund amount shall be credited to the account of card holder without any need to swipe his card at the time of cancellation at the counter.
ii) The customer can approach to any counter anywhere for cancellation of ticket booked from SBI POS. Needless to mention that PRS ticket can be cancelled only at any PRS/PRS cum UTS counter and UTS ticket shall be cancelled only at any UTS/PRS cum UTS counter.
iii) The print of cancelled PRS ticket would have a message indicating that “Electronic Refund” for the information of the customer. The customer may also be informed verbally or through information board that the refund shall be credited to the account of card holder within 7 days.

2. IRCTC customer care dealing with the refund issues of e-tickets is entrusted with the responsibility to address refund related complaints of tickets issued using POS. IRCTC shall coordinate with SBI, CRIS and concerned Zonal Railways to monitor the processing of refunds on daily basis and to resolve the issues/complaints in expeditious manner.

3. Cancellation cum refund procedure for PRS tickets issued from POS of other banks.
There are around 75 POS machines which were operational at different locations of Indian Railways prior to awarding contract for installing 10,000 POS machines to SBI. The refund is processed through online method in this POS machines, wherein, the customer needs to swipe his credit/debit card at the POS machine at the time of cancellation of the ticket and the due refund amount as fed by the booking/reservation clerk is credited to the account of the card holder. However, this process of refund is possible only at locations having POS machines. At non POS locations, the Ticket Deposit Receipt (TDR) is issued to affect the refund. This procedure shall continue till further advice. However, the refund of the ticket issued using SBI POS shall not be processed by swiping the card on non SBI POS. While cancelling the ticket, the system shall prompt the booking clerk about the POS (SBI or other bank) which was used at the time of booking and advise the booking clerk not to swipe the card.

New Delhi: Simple, plain exteriors of trains could be a thing of past soon, as Indian Railways is considering selling consolidated media rights to companies for branding the entire train.
As per The Times of India report, in order to mop up its non fare and non freight revenue, Indian Railways will allow big corporate players to advertise both inside and outside the train bogies and stations on a long-term basis, and is expected to get approval of the railway board next week.
The public sector transporter plans to raise around Rs 2,000

crore in 'nonfare' revenue.
The branding will include setting up huge LED screen advertisements at stations, platforms and foot overbridges leading to station areas. The branding rights will be offered through bidding in a phased manner, starting with Rajdhani and Shatabdi services.

Jan 06 2017 (12:20)   Thane gets its RO-RO trial wish granted

For Better Managed Indian Railways~   945 news posts
Entry# 2118428   News Entry# 290599         Tags   Past Edits
Mumbai: Thane residents’ wishes may soon be granted, what with the first trial of railway’s unique RO-RO service to be carried out between JNPT and Vasai Road on January 5. The trial will see goods’ trucks piggyback flat rail wagons between JNPT and Vasai Road after which they can once again take the road. This is exactly what Thane residents had asked of the railway so as to curb traffic snarls and pollution.
The RO-RO service, currently in use on Konkan Railway (KR), has saved diesel and proved more eco-friendly than trucks that ferry goods (consumer and non-consumer) to and from north India. At present, at least 500 such trucks ferry goods from JNPT port to Vasai and further north of the

country.
Officials said that the request was made by BJP Rajya Sabha MP Vinay Sahasrabuddhe along with residents of the area. Western Railway (WR) divisional railway manager Mukul Jain said, “We will be conducting trial up to Boisar on Thursday morning and if all goes well, we will begin building infrastructure like ramps for the trucks to get onto the wagons.” A railway official on condition of anonymity said, “We were told that the issue was raised by Mr Sahastrabuddhe and accordingly, railway minister Suresh Prabhu has asked us to see if this is feasible as residents of that area have been complaining about the intense smog as a result of fuel emissions on Thane road”. Mr Prabhu is learnt to have told the Railway Board that he would like it if the railway did its bit for the environment including decongesting the Thane-Mulund-Porbunder road that sees the densest road traffic.
Mr Sahasrabuddhe was not available on phone and did not respond to text messages sent by this newspaper.

another reason of using air piston system is this that..

it would rest on any level of platform.. and only sandwiched step (step1+step2) down upto 10 inch

and second step ll

start going down in that case if there are no platform.

total height of 20 inch (10x10inch) both steps ll cover in expanded position.

Safar of Hamsafar is going to be costly...
it would feel diffrent if Ministry of Railway introduce new booking portal (e.g. humsafar.irctc.co.in) for new trains having dynamic pricing.
