PUNE: Passengers will now be able to book railway tickets even on Sunday afternoons till night. Three counters have been set up to provide computerised reservations from 2 pm to 10 pm.
This pilot project was inaugurated at the Pune railway station on Sunday. Divisional Railway Manager ( Pune) Vishal Agarwal inaugurated the project.
"Earlier, reservation counters used to be closed on Sunday afternoons for regular system maintenance. Now, the system will be available even on Sunday afternoons. We want to provide people with good service and hence three counters -- 28, 29 and 30 -- will now be functional every Sunday from 2 pm to 10 pm," Agarwal said.
The first passenger to book a rail ticket using this facility on Sunday was Haribhau Tingade.
He said, "Last Sunday no such facility was available and so I couldn't book a ticket to Mumbai. I came to book it on Tuesday but I did not get a confirmed booking. I had to rush to Mumbai for some important work."
Public Relations Officer (PRO), Pune Railway Division, YK Singh said this facility is a pilot project launched first at the Pune railway station. "If it succeeds, then we are planning to set up such facilities at other stations in the city as well," he said.
