In a major boost to Government’s key initiative of cashless transactions, Railways introduced the facility for booking of railway tickets from railway counters through UPI and BHIM App from today.
This facility will be available for booking of reserved tickets from Passenger Reservation System counters and booking of Season Tickets from Unreserved Ticketing System counters.
This will be in addition to the digital payment options already available to railway passengers. No additional charges will be levied from passengers making payment for a period of 3 months.
The facility for booking of e-tickets online on IRCTC Website has already been implemented earlier. Now, it has been extended to the tickets being booked from railway counters.
