SCR Encourages Digital Payments for Purchasing of Tickets at Railway Stations

        Payment through PoS machines and UPI has been enabled at all important Railway stations for ease of ticketing.

South Central Railway is at the forefront in implementation of digital initiatives and in this direction several measures have been undertaken such as introduction of UTS Mobile App, Automatic Ticket Vending Machines, Point of Sale machines (PoS), UPI payments etc. To strengthen the o­nline infrastructure and facilitate Rail users for easy and convenient ticketing, it has been decided to further encourage cashless transactions and digital payments. Accordingly, the Zone has set up PoS Machines and UPI payments at all Passenger Reservation System (PRS) and Unreserved Ticketing System (UTS) counters in almost all important Railway stations in Non- Suburban (NSG) 1-4 and Sub-urban category stations.

As technology continues to advance, cashless payments are becoming increasingly popular. Accordingly, to serve the new-age Rail passengers and also promote o­nline transactions among all segments of Rail users, SCR has been making conscious efforts to further increase the share of digital payments in Railway counter ticketing. At present, over 466 POS machines have been made available across South Central Railway for PRS and UTS ticketing.  These PoS machines facilitate payments through debit/credit cards thereby ensuring effortless and convenient transactions. Passengers can also make payments through various UPI apps which can be downloaded from the app store.  The UPI apps ensure flexible and speedy payments through mobile phones.  

SCR has been undertaking initiatives to further improve the utilization of digital payment systems across the zone. In this regard, the zone has been identifying and reviewing the demand of machines at uncovered Non-Suburban and Suburban category Railway stations where there is a feasibility to set up digital payments such as PoS, UPI etc.

Shri Arun Kumar Jain, General Manager, South Central Railway has stated that the Zone has been proactively promoting digital payments so as to strengthen the digital India initiative in Railways and also ensure easy and fast payment option to all Rail users. He appealed to passengers for adopting cashless transactions which will not o­nly save their time but also provide them an easy and convenient purchase option.
