A plan has come to the mind of a small lazy brain man like me where the train is struggling to stop the black market of train tickets.
The traditional train ticketing system has to be extended in two steps.
The first step
As we cut regular tickets, it will be counted as a reservation. Here the passenger will complete the registration online or offline with his mobile number and NID or Passport number.
Reservations will be made by the passenger himself or by paying the NID or Passport number of the person for whom the ticket is being issued and by paying the fare. Using NID or Passport number will automatically fill in all passenger information (e.g. name, phone number) which will not be subject to change later. Boarding passes can be collected up to 30 minutes before the start of the journey with a copy of the reservation.
The second step
Boarding pass will be collected to ensure the journey of the passenger. While collecting the boarding pass, an OTP code will be sent to the phone number given in the reservation copy which will print the boarding pass only if input.
If no one collects the boarding pass 30 minutes in advance, it will be counted as open cell. They can be collected directly with mobile number, NID or Passport number by paying train fare.
The matter may seem adulterated to many but I see no other way but to do so to prevent the black market of train tickets, to guarantee everyone’s ticket. At first, it seemed like a paradox, I was convinced that everyone would get used to it.
