NSG, IRCTC join hands to ease ticket booking for personnel
n ow national security guard personnel will not have to face hardships to get railway tickets as india’s elite federal contingency force has signed an agreement with irctc for an e-ticketing facility.
The pact will eliminate the need of using Railway Warrants by nsg officers/personnel travelling on duty in trains. earlier, the nsg force personnel were supposed to visit reservation counters to exchange their Railway Warrant for reserved tickets. irctc will be extending the ticketing facility to nsg headquarters, which later on maybe extended to field units also. IRCTC will be extending this scheme through advance deposit to allow hassle-free service from payments at the time of online ticket booking. nsg is the first central paramilitary force to opt for e-ticketing in lieu of Railway Warrants.
