THE NORTH Central Railway has decided to put up Digital Fare Display Monitors at all the ticket booking counters situated on the City as well as the Civil Lines side of the Allahabad Junction Railway Station for the benefit of the passengers.

If things shape up according to the plan, the train passengers will get the much needed relief from the inconvenience which they have to face while waiting in the long queues at the enquiry counters just to know the exact fare for their intended destination. Through this new system the passengers will be able to know the actual fare which they have to pay for their journey just by a glance on these LED screens.

"This system will be in a modified form and will display the fare of tickets which can be easily read from the screen even when a passenger is standing at quite a distance", said a senior official associated with the project.

A proposal was sent to the DRM a month back which has now been approved. Not only this, the NCR is also giving a thought on setting up close circuit cameras at the booking counters too.

Through this system, the officials plan to monitor the various problems which the passengers have to face while procuring their tickets standing in the queues.
