Vadodara: Vadodara division of Western Railways has opened ‘Jaldi ticket window' at Vadodara, Nadiad, Bharuch, Anand and Ankleshwar railway stations to facilitate prompt ticketing service for passengers. The directive in this regard was issued by the Railway Board following announcement of ‘operation five minutes' facility by Railway minister Suresh Prabhu in the annual rail budget.
“Under the ticketing system, passengers travelling in unreserved class can purchase ticket within five minutes. For the purpose, railways will print tickets of popular or most-travelled destinations in advance. This would save a lot of time, hence, making the process fast,” senior Divisional Commercial Manager, Vadodara division, Pradeep Banerjee said.
He said currently the windows will be run on an experimental basis and will be expanded later on based on the response.
