i think its important that IR tries to phase out cash transactions at counters.
1- start having card accepting machines at PRS counters
2- start selling unreserved ticket online in an easy way by simple clicks of button instead of cumbersome Reservation process. because in unreserved u just need to enter from, to and pay money without entering name and all
3- Restrict
few trains that can have bookings only in card. For example, rajdhani, durontos, 1AC in all trains can have bookings only from card. Even now on November 8, lots of 1AC tickets were booked with black money.
4- luggage and goods transport payments to be done only in card. this would eliminate lots of corruption.
5- Maybe a simpler rule where any transaction above 5000 INR can be done only through card. This would actually make IR safe from any mass use of black money. We hear of trains being booked for political rallies. That won't be possible if the party's money is unaccounted.
How do members feel about this? Please share. Please give reasons in case you are for or against this.

This is a very good initiative by IR!!!

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains. Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
