TRAINS OVER ER FROM TODAY
March 1, 2021:
•Applicable for originating and terminating stations within Eastern Railway Zone.
•Not applicable for fully reserved Mail/Express Trains.
•Season Tickets will also be issued for unreserved passenger trains.
During lockdown, train services were suspended to avoid community spread of COVID-19 virus. Train services resumed in a phased manner during unlock period and in course of time suburban services were also restored. But UTS on Mobile App could not be started as this is a Pan India network and in many Railways suburban services were either not restored or restricted to a limited group of persons.
UTS Mobile App ticketing system for journeys within suburban areas was started from 6.1.2021. It enabled the passengers to travel without having to stand in queues at the ticket counters. Thus, Railway facilitated the passengers to maintain physical distancing, one of the yardsticks of protection against Corona Virus. However, UTS for Mail/Express trains and short distance passenger trains could not be started as unreserved accommodation in such trains were not allowed.
Unreserved ticketing service through UTS on Mobile app in non-suburban sections of Eastern Railway has been resumed from today (01.03.2021) in a restricted mode. After enabling this app, passengers can get access to purchase tickets in the following manner:-
1)This facility is applicable for Eastern Railway jurisdiction only i.e. both originating and terminating stations within Eastern Railway Zone.
2)Mail/Express tickets will not be issued through this app as unreserved accommodation is not yet allowed in Mail/Express trains.
