In a first of its kind initiative contactless ticket checkingimplemented at PryagrajJunction

Airport like Boarding passes are being issued to passenger authorizing entry to station and in train

30 AC special trains from 12.05.20 and 200 special trains from 01.06.20 have been started of which 26 AC special and 100 other special trains have stoppage at different stations over NCR including 02 originating specials between Prayagraj-New Delhi and Kanpur-New Delhi . In wake of Covid-19 elaborate social distancing and hygiene arrangements have been made at all stations handling these trains and originating trains of North Central Railway.

Besides these standard arrangements, innovative concepts are also being tried out for efficient handling of passengers with proper social distancing and minimal physical contact. o­ne such system for automatic QR code based ticket scanninghas already been implemented at PrayagrajJn. station of North Central Railway since 01.06.20 .

In a novel & first experiment of its kind, Airport like boarding facility has been introduced at Prayagraj junction station of North Central Railway.Passengers arriving at junction stationare first taken to boarding hall where four new check-in counters have been made. These check-in counters are fully contactless keeping in view the safety of our esteemed passengers due to COVID crisis. In each glass separated counter two-way display TFT monitors are installed o­ne side of which faces the passengers and other side is towards checking staff. For scanning ticket and passenger identity particulars a web cam o­n passenger side has been provided which is connected to computer available with ticket checking staff. The PNR of passenger is checkedeither through capturing particulars through web cam or through already introduced QR code scanning system. For communication between passenger and ticket checking staff microphone and speakers are provided o­n both sides physically separated through glass partition wall of the counter.After confirmation of passenger identity and ticket checking a boarding pass containing requisite details like name, PNR number , coach and berth number is printed through a printer provided o­n passenger side. This boarding pass authorises passenger to enter the station premises and inside the train however ticket and identity card should be available with passenger. The o­n board ticket checking staff is also aware of the status of passengers who have checked in before through an auto updation software installed in a tablet.

This technology not o­nly ensures contactless ticket checking to safeguard passengers and railway staff but also helps in identifying vacant berths in a train which are then relayed to next station for better availability of berth to passengers. Thermal scanning process is also being integrated to this system to make it comprehensive and single check point for passenger for entry in the station .

GM North Central and Northern Railway Sri Rajiv Chaudhry who has been the guiding force in development of this system, complemented team of Prayagraj division for its successful implementation . DRM Prayagraj Sri Amitabha ,Sr DCM SriAnhoo Pandey and divisional team are working o­n further refining the system for its proliferation to other stations over North Central Railway.
