INDORE: Railway passengers buying tickets from reservation counters can now swipe their debit card or credit card to make payments.
Authorities of Ratlam division of the Western Railway have introduced point-of-sale (POS) machines for tickets bookings at its nine railway stations. The initiative is to encourage cashless transactions at the stations.
A total of 17 POS machines have been procured and installed at major stations of the division. The list of stations includes Indore, Ujjain, Ratlam, Mhow, Nagda, Dahod, Dewas, Neemach and Mandsaur.
the list of stations, a maximum of 4 POS machines have been introduced at reservation counters at Indore Railway Station, while three POS machines have been installed at Ujjain and Ratlam stations each. Mhow has 2 POS machines, while Nagda, Dahod, Dewas, Neemach and Mandsor has one POS machines each. Ujjain was the first in the division to have this facility.
Railway authorities while appealing to passengers to take note of the development said that we are leaving no stone unturned in responding to call for cashless transactions given by the central government. They said that an arrangement has been made between the Railways and State Bank of India for providing card swipe machines at reservation counters.
Anil Jain, a canteen operator at city railway station said that the move to facilitate PoS machines at reservation counters is a welcome step. "A considerable number of passengers opt for offline reservation process and they would benefit from the PoS machines. The number of these machines should be increased," he said.
"All major railway stations of the division have been chosen to have these PoS machines, other stations of the division would also get this facility in days to come," said officials.
Initially, the facility has been introduced for reserved ticket counters. "We would soon introduce the cashless facility at the counters of unreserved tickets and parcel counters, said officials. The WCR is planning to extend such facilities at other railway stations of the division also," said an official.
