🔘 Get seats easily in unreserved coaches! Indian Railways introduces new biometric system for general passengers 🔘
Indian Railways introduces biometric system for unreserved coaches click here : In a passenger-friendly step, Piyush Goyal-led Indian Railways has for the first time introduced a system of biometric identification to guarantee seats to railway passengers in general class unreserved coaches. The pilot project has been launched at Western Railway division's Mumbai Central railway station and Bandra Terminus. The aim of the project is to prevent stampede like situation at platforms at the time of boarding
trains with unreserved coaches. According to Indian Railways, general class passengers often complain about cornering of seats by antisocial elements.
How does Indian Railways new biometric system for unreserved coaches work?
Passengers purchasing tickets for the general class coaches will have to get their fingerprints scanned at the biometric machine, after which a token will be generated. The total number of tokens generated will be in line with the number of seats in a particular general class coach. The passengers can then assemble in a queue as per their serial number on the token a few minutes before the rake is placed on the platform. The RPF staff at the entry point of the general class coach verifies the token serial number and allows the passengers to board the coach in an orderly manner.
The biometric machine is being used for the general class coaches of the following trains:
Amravati Express (Mumbai Central station)
Jaipur Superfast Express (Mumbai Central station)
Karnavati Express (Mumbai Central station)
Gujarat Mail (Mumbai Central station)
Golden Temple Mail (Mumbai Central station)
Paschim Express (Bandra Terminus)
Amrapur Aravali Express (Bandra Terminus)
Avadh Express (Bandra Terminus)
Maharashtra Sampark Kranti Express (Bandra Terminus)
Attempts at crowd control by RPF have face challenges with people jumping queues. The additional benefit of the initiative is that it does away with corrupt practices in allocation of seats and also helps the Railway Protection Force (RPF) identify possible thieves through fingerprint records.
Indian Railways has procured 4 biometric machines, 2 each for the Mumbai Central railway station and Bandra Terminus station. An advanced version of the machine is also being eyed for induction. "This machine also captures images of passengers, eliminating the need for video recording of passengers boarding general class coaches," Ravinder Bhakar, CPRO of Western Railway told Financial Express Online. As many as 8 advanced biometric identification machines will be procured by Indian Railways - 4 each for Ahmedabad abd Mumbai divisions. Two machines will be used at the Surat station and one each at the Mumbai Central and Bandra Terminus stations of the Mumbai division.
আঙুলের ছাপে মেল/এক্সপ্রেস ট্রেনের সিট!
রেল এবার মেল/এক্সপ্রেস ট্রেনের অ-সংরক্ষিত কামরার টিকিটের জন্য বায়োমেট্রিক ব্যবস্থা চালু করতে চলেছে। এর ফলে মেল/এক্সপ্রেস ট্রেনের অসংরক্ষিত কামরায় আসন মিলবে আগে আসার ভিত্তিতেই।
নতুন ব্যবস্থা অনুযায়ী জেনারেল ক্লাসের/অ-সংরক্ষিত কামরার টিকিট কাটার সময় যাত্রীদের আঙুলের ছাপ একটি বায়োমেট্রেক মেশিনে স্ক্যান করা হবে। স্ক্যানের পর মেশিন থেকে বেরোবে সিরিয়াল নম্বর লেখা একটি টোকেন। কোচে যত সিট, ততগুলি টোকেনই বেরোবে। তারপর প্ল্যাটফর্মে সিরিয়াল নম্বর অনুসারে যাত্রীদের লাইন দিতে বলা হবে। কোচে ওঠার সময় আরপিএফ জওয়ানরা সেগুলি পরীক্ষা করে দেখবেন।
মুম্বই সেন্ট্রাল ও বান্দ্রা টার্মিনাসে এখন বায়োমেট্রিক মেশিন পরীক্ষা করা হচ্ছে। স্টেশন দুটিতে দুটি মেশিন বসানো হয়েছে। এখন ৯টি দূরপাল্লার ট্রেনে এই নয়া ব্যবস্থা চালু রয়েছে।
