Kolkata, 31st October, 2018:
With a view to avoid overcrowding at Santragachi Ticket Booking Office, two Automatic Ticket Vending Machines (ATVM) have been installed at Satragachi today (31.10.18) as instructed by Sri P.S.Mishra, General Manager, South Eastern Railway during his inspection of Santragachi Station on 25thOctober, 2018.
One ATVM has been installed at the SantragachiStation Building Ticket Booking Office near Platform No 1, while the other one has been installed at the Ticket Booking Office at Kona Expressway end near Platform No 6 of the station. This will help to reduce queue at the Booking Counters to a great extent.
Moreover, keeping in view Railway Boards initiatives on digitalisation of passenger service utilities, it has been decided that UTS mobile ticketing through mobile App will be extended across all zones of Indian Railways (excluding Konkan Railway) w.e.f. 1.11.18. This will enable mobile ticketing on all existing UTS Routes.
