Railways Budget 2013 rolls out Next Generation tech, P K Bansal says book train ticket via mobile phone
Bansal also listed measures taken to curb malpractices in reserved tickets including Tatkal, such as mandatory carrying of ID cards for passengers and rigorous drive leading to prosecution of more than 1,800 touts in the current year.
Bansal said that the Next Generation technology would significantly improve the e-ticketing system through end user experience in respect of ease of use, response time as well as capacity.
The system shall be able to support 7,200 tickets per minute as against 2,000 tickets per minute today. It would also support 1,20,000 simultaneous users at any point in time against the present capacity of 40,000 users with capability to easily scale up as demand increases in future.
"The system will make use of advanced fraud control and security management tools thereby further improving fairness and transparency in disbursal of tickets," the Minister said.
