RAIPUR,

THE LCD information display system installed at ticket booking counters at Raipur Railway station is not functional since many days.  The reservation information system was installed at all the current and reservation ticket counters. Over 15 counters are equipped with the display board. One third part of the display contained information related to ticket. Like train number, train name, from station to station, booking date, journey date, boarding point, reservation upto, class, availability, train type, distance of journey in kilometres, number of Adults, Children and finally Total fare. The purpose of the display system was to avoid  mistake while entering the details of ticket by the clerk. But due to technical snag the display is out of function.


While talking to The Hitavada, Divisional Railway Manager of Raipur Division, Kaushal Kishore said the facility was started by railway to provide transparency for passengers and to avoid mistakes while entering details when booking the ticket. Due to technical reasons the synchronisation of the data has not become possible with the display system. However, the technical staffs are trying their best to get it rectified. In case the system doesn’t work properly they would remove the system, the official informed.
