JAIPUR: After Rajasthan State Roadways Corporation (RSRTC) taking measures to promote cashless transactions, North Western Railways (NWR) is all set to procure and install swipe machines at major railway stations in the state. This will facilitate passengers to book reserved tickets with the help of card swipe machines to be installed at 51 stations across four divisions of NWR.
In the first phase, all these machines would be installed by December 31. In the next phase, people in Rajasthan would be able to get unreserved tickets too by swiping their debit and credit cards.
Tuesday, RSRTC started the facility of ticket booking by swiping debit and credit cards at e-Mitra and Atal Sewa Kendras in the state. "At some stations, the facilityis already functioning. We are planning to install 78 machines at 51 major railway stations of the North Western Railways," said Tarun Jain, chief public relations officer, NWR, on Wednesday.
"In the first phase, the facility will be available for mail or express, super-fast, Rajdhani and Shatabdi Express trains, while in the second phase the cashless bookings will be extended to unreserved tickets in passenger trains," Jain added.
Out of the total 78 machines, the authorities have already installed 37.
"Stations like Jaipur will get six machines while Ajmer will have five to start with. Other smaller stations will get one or two machines," said a senior officer.
