NEW DELHI : Getting paperless tickets will soon be easier at some stations of the North Western Railway, according to a report in ANI. The North Western Railway has come up with the introduction of QR Codes for 12 stations to get unreserved tickets easily on mobile. With this facility it will be convenient for the passengers who decide to book tickets in the last minute.

"Passengers can get their tickets with ease after scanning the QR code issued at the mentioned stations by using UTS app on mobile," ANI quoted North Western Railway, Chief Public Relations Officer, Abhay Sharma as saying.

Paperless unreserved mobile tickets available at these stations

Passengers can easily obtain paperless unreserved mobile tickets at 12 important stations namely, Jaipur, Ajmer, Jodhpur, Bikaner, Abu Road, Udaipur City, Durgapura, Alwar, Rewari, Sanganer, Lalgarh and Gandhinagar Jaipur in the first phase.

How to book tickets through QR codes

To book a ticket through QR codes, the user is required to download the UTS application from Google Play Store and complete the 'registration' and 'login' process. Following the login, the user is required to select QR booking in the 'book ticket' menu and scan the QR code provided at the station premises. Selection of the destination and other required fields would result in the completion of the booking process.

QR code can be scanned at the station

Earlier, the paperless unreserved ticket could only be booked when the passenger was 30 to 50 meters away from the railway track. Now, this facility would enable passengers to scan the QR code provided at the station itself.

"By the means of this facility, the passengers would get access to an easy interface, using which the paperless unreserved ticket would be made available on the mobile phone itself. This would facilitate both the passenger's time as well as paper, resulting in enhanced environment protection," the statement read.
