SER INSTALLS HUGE POINT OF SALE (POS) MACHINES FOR CASHLESS TRANSACTIONS TOWARDS PURCHASE OF TICKETS

Kolkata, 18thJuly, 2018:

South Eastern Railway has taken initiatives to encourage cashless transaction at booking offices, ticket counters and parcel offices for purchase of railway tickets and booking of luggage through Point of Sale machines spread over 4 divisions of its jurisdictions.

As of now, 488 Point of Sale (POS) Machines have been installed at Passenger Reservation System (PRS) Counters, Unreserved Ticketing System (UTS) Counters, Parcel offices at Metropolitan City Stations, Suburban and non-suburban sections of South Eastern Railway. Initially the facility was extended to all counters of PRS and this has also been extended in a greater way at the counter of Unreserved Ticketing System (UTS). Parcel offices are now equipped with POS machines and South Eastern Railway has also introduced such facility in non-suburban sections along with some static catering units.

Passengers may use Point of Sale machines to purchase season tickets also for their convenience apart from UTS mobile Apps, which have been introduced in all sections of SER jurisdiction in recent past.

The objective of railways is to its ticket sale system to be completely cashless to reduce higher cost of managing ticket windows. Cash dealing in reservation offices and at stations is tough task for the booking officials. It will also be beneficial for Booking and Parcel Clerks as well if railway provides enough Swipe Machines across the Railways.
