Indian Railways expands e-payments
Indian Railways has asked the State Bank among others to provide around 15,000 point of sale (POS) machines at reservation counters to make railway travel bookings digital.

The Railways has asked the banks to provide about a thousand of these machines to be made available by Dec 31. 

Currently, the Railways does not provide POS service for debit and credit card payments at its ticket counters. 

“We have around 12,000 ticket counters. All of them would be equipped with one or more POS machines depending on the daily transactions,” a senior rail board official said. 

In the first phase, counters at all urban centres would have the machines. “In places like Mumbai, where there’s a huge sale of monthly passes, we would have POS machines installed immediately, the official added, according to a news agency report.
