Gorakhpur: Railways always strives for the convenience of the passengers. In this sequence, preparations are on to install hi-tech ticket vending machines at major stations of North Eastern Railway. Ticket Vending Machines (ATVMs) are being installed by the Headquarters. This will bring great convenience to the passengers. Actually, due to non-use in Kovid, the old machines installed at the stations have given the answer. At the same time, now the booking of general tickets has also started, so these machines are needed.
Keeping this in mind, the NE Railway Administration has placed an order for the purchase of 108 ATVMs for the main railway stations of NER. Out of these 108 machines, 10 will be installed in Gorakhpur, 8-8 in Lucknow and Varanasi, 6 in Gonda. Along with this, machines will be installed at 1 dozen railway stations as per the need. This will facilitate the passengers in taking general tickets.
Machines were installed at the station 3 years ago
12 ATVMs were installed 3 years ago on platform number 1 and 2 of Gorakhpur Junction. In the early days the machines worked properly. Rail passengers also got its benefit. Due to the disruption of the operation of trains during Kovid-19, the movement of passengers stopped, after which the machines were also stopped. In this way, these machines remained closed for almost 2 years. When the operation of the trains started fully, the work on the machines was done. When the machines were checked, except one or two, none of the machines were in running condition.
