The Railways have taken one more step in digitalisation of ticketing services. Users of UTS on Mobile App can now book paperless mobile ticket from any station on Southern Railway to any station across Indian Railways. Earlier there was a restriction on booking paperless tickets to destinations outside the Southern Railway.
Now paperless or printout type tickets can be booked when you are at any location within 5 kms of the originating station right up to the station concourse (about 25 mts from the platform/train). on the concourse/booking office area also using the QR code scanning method, paperless UTS tickets can be booked if the passenger is in any suburban station. The QR code for each station is pasted on a poster displayed at all booking offices in Chennai suburban area.
The paperless UTS booking to all Railways/destinations will be rolled out on 1/11/2018 all over India. The travelling public is requested to make use of the improved facility for making their travel experience simpler and easier.
