Now find train ticket details on LCD screens

Thanks to a series of changes made at New Delhi railway station, commuters will now get to see their ticket details displayed on LCD screens at the counters. The facility was inaugurated by Delhi Divisional Railway Manager A. K. Sachan on Tuesday.

Mr. Sachan said that it has also now been made mandatory for porters to keep a rate list, which has not been revised since the past one year, with them. To deal with the crowds at the entrance to the Ajmeri Gate side of the railway station, baggage scanners and ticketing counters have been shifted to the inside part of the building.

Talking about the facility Mr. Sachan said: “The LCD screens, which have been strategically placed at every booking counter, will display the ticket details including the name, date of journey, number of tickets purchased, destination, the fare in Hindi and English, and the name of the ticket operator.

If passengers find any mistake on the screen, then it can be pointed out before getting the ticket from the counter.”

The LCD screen facility is available only for unreserved tickets, but Mr. Sachan said the facility will soon be extended to reserved tickets.

The LCD screens which are called as Dual Display Infotainment System will also have entertainment videos, live news, cricket scores, important railways safety videos and advertisements.
