Innovative QR based contactless ticket checking system developed by North Central Railway has been implemented o­n Pan India basis


CRIS rolled out application covering all Zonal Railways to display reserved ticket details as QR code


In a major development, innovative QR codebased ticket checking system developed by Prayagraj division of North Central Railway has been implemented o­n pan India basis for contactless reserved ticket checking. Centre for Railway Information Systems (CRIS) has rolled out an application covering all Zonal Railways to display reserved ticket details of passenger in form of unique QR code.


On successful reserved ticket booking anywhere in the country, a SMS containing URL of QR code will be sent to the passenger mobile number. Duringentering the station or checking of ticket, passenger will click o­n the QR code URL available in his/her SMS and the QR Code of the reserved ticket will be displayed o­n the passenger’s mobile browser. Ticket checking staff will scan the displayed QR Code, through his/her mobile device having the capability of scanning the QR code. Any QR code scanning application available in Google Play store or iOS App Store such as QR &Barcode Scanner, QR Code reader, etc. can be used for this purpose. Besides mobile, hand held terminal (HHT) with CRIS application can also be used for QR code scanning in contactless fashion and QR code scanning will automatically update the passenger turn up details in the application which will provide real time information o­n occupancy, no. of vacant berths etc. This application launched by CRIS covering entire reserved ticketing of Railways is live now and SMS withURL links for generating QR code is being sent o­n provided mobile no. of passengers. Railway Board has asked to train and sensitizeall ticket checking staff o­n this contactless ticket checking system.


This QR code based contactless ticket scanning system was originally implemented o­n Prayagraj station ofNorth Central Railway o­n pilot basis w.e.f. 01.06.20 and now it has been implemented for entire reserved ticketing system.

Under the overall guidance of General Manager North Central and Northern Railway Shri Rajiv Chaudhry, Prayagraj divisional team led by DRM Sri Amitabha hasimplemented an advanced version of this system combining contactless ticket checking and issue of airport type boarding passes. Sr DCM Prayagraj Shri Anshoo Pandey, actively involved in development of these systems informed that Prayagraj division is in touch with Railway board for implementation of airport style boarding passes too o­n Pan India basis.


North Central Railway has been leading the way in implementing innovative ways in Railway working. Railway board has recently selected 08 innovations done by NCR for implementation o­n all zonal railways. These 08 innovations are part of 20 “Good Works” selected by Railway Board from total 2645 entries received from different Railway Units.
