Hand held terminals to be provided to TTEs


New Delhi: The Minister of Railways Shri Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu has said that hand-held terminals will be provided to Travelling Ticket Examiners (TTEs), which can be used for verification of passengers and downloading charts. This system will help the Railways to move towards paperless ticketing and charting and expedite finalization of refund claims apart from saving of paper.

Presenting the Railway Budget 2015-16 in Parliament today Shri Prabhu said, Railways is also exploring the idea of extending the facility of SMS on mobiles as a valid proof of travel for PRS tickets as well.

He said, an integrated customer portal is being put in place, which will be a single interface for the customers to access different services. Seamless navigation would be possible across different websites of Railways.
