Book Your Railway Tickets At Nearby Post Office

Image
 
I see Indian Government Departments working together now a days. Specially Post Offices in India are now going out of their boundaries and doing Income Tax Filing, Passport Applications and now Railway Ticket Booking. I think after this "email" era, post office staff should get some work right?
 
Railway Ministry and the Department of Posts yesterday signed a memorandum of understanding for providing railway ticket booking services at the post offices.
 
This service will be available in 30 places across the country initially. The Postal Department would use computerized Passenger Reservation System (PRS) counters to issue tickets.

 

To avail this services at post office, customers would have to pay service charge imposed by The Railways. First class passengers would have to pay Rs. 25 per ticket other categories like AC III and II class sleeper would have to pay Rs. 20 & Rs. 15 respectively.

 

The post offices are also planning to extend their e-ticketing to the public. (Rediff News)
