The ministry has increased the distance fixed for booking tickets in this way through the app. Now people can book tickets through the app from a long distance from the station from where they want to travel. The ministry has issued orders related to this to the software maker Chris.


New Delhi. Railway Ministry has taken a big decision on Unreserved Ticket. With this decision, lakhs of passengers traveling by booking unreserved tickets will be facilitated. The ministry has increased the distance fixed for booking tickets in this way through the app. Now passengers will be able to book tickets through the app from a greater distance than before from the journey commencing station. The ministry has issued orders related to this to the software maker Chris.

There are two types of tickets booked for traveling by railway, reserved and unreserved. Reserved tickets can be booked online or through the app for any destination from anywhere, but unreserved tickets can be booked only up to a limited distance from the journey commencing station. According to the Ministry of Railways, the decision has been taken to prevent misuse of limited distance tickets.

Change happened for these trains
Railways has changed the rules for booking unreserved tickets from Suburban and Mail-Express. But in trains like EMU, the same rules will be applicable as before.

This change happened
Earlier tickets for suburban trains could be booked from the app only at a distance of 2 km from the start of the journey. For example, if someone wants to catch a Delhi station train, he could book an unreserved ticket from the app by reaching a radius of 2 km from the station. But after the new decision of the Ministry of Railways, tickets can now be booked up to a radius of 5 km. Whereas, 5 km before starting the journey in Mail Express. Tickets could be booked within the radius of 20 km, but now the radius for these trains has been increased to 20 km. have been done.

That’s why the changed rule
many times the network suddenly disappears when the passenger mobile reaches near the station (within a radius of 2 km), due to which he could not book the ticket and missed his train. Due to this the distance has been increased, so that passengers can book tickets from a longer distance.
