Mumbai: QR code-based ticket checking for Mail/Express passengers at CSMT.Soon, Mumbai Division will be installing Flap gates for Long Distance Passengers at CSMT. Central Railway Mumbai Division will be installing flap-based gates for automatic entry into the station at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus ( non-suburban passenger entry) by using QR code tickets. These flap based gates have a QR code scanner and thermal scanning feature. Passengers will be required to place the QR code on the QR code scanner at the entry gate for validation of the ticket details. Access will be permitted only after validation of both ticket details and temperature screening.
Presently, a QR code is generated for tickets booked through IRCTC website or PRS counters. This QR code carries all details on the ticket and can be accessed by passengers from the ticket generated in IRCTC App, from the PDF of the ticket or by clicking the URL in the SMS received upon booking the ticket.
This initiative will facilitate safe travel during COVID19, promote social distancing between passengers and railway staff, help in detecting unauthorised access to station premises and rationalise human resources.
Passengers are requested to note and help railways to serve you better.
Let us fight together #COVID19.
