North Eastern Railway has started working on initiatives to provide better facilities for its passengers. The railways have now started preparing to provide metro-like facilities to passengers at 75 stations in the Gorakhpur division. Passengers will be able to obtain tickets easily and quickly through the ATVM machine. Passengers will not have to wait in long queues for tickets at stations. They will easily obtain their general ticket by smart card.
108 machines will be installed
Smart cards will be produced at the counters in the station itself. It may also be renewed from time to time. As soon as the chip card is used in the welding machine as an ATM, it receives a ticket with details. This type of installation has been available in subway stations. Ticket vending machines were also installed in the railways earlier, but they are out of service. Now, the railway administration has followed the recommendation of the railway board for the installation of new state-of-the-art ATVM machines. A total of 108 machines will be installed.
