In a decision that would benefit the passengers in a big way, the Nagpur division of Central Railway has decided to open reservation counters on Sundays for full day.
At present, on Sundays reservation counters used to remain open from 8am to 2pm. Now these counters will remain open in the second shift too – from 2pm to 8pm. The facility will be available from June 16.
“Although this will be on a permanent basis, initially two counters will remain open at the main station on experimental basis. Looking at the response the facility will be extended at Ajni later,” said Brijesh Dixit, divisional railway manager (DRM).
Dixit said that the maiden move was taken after a positive feedback from large number of commuters who prefer to be at the reservation counters on Sunday, being a public holiday. Both the counters will be available for booking tickets and cancellations too.
