Smart India Hackathon 2018: Project to digitise railway ticketing process bags first prize in Pune

Hindustan Times, Pune | By Ananya Barua, Pune
UPDATED ON MAR 31, 2018 11:48 PM IST
“We came to know that the railways spend 1.2 lakh per train on paper charts, and there are around 12,500 trains in India. So the project was to reduce this cost of paper by eliminating the pen-paper work in the railways and digitising it. The application was for ticket collectors (TC), whereby a simple QR code already present in the railway tickets will enable the TC to track and record the tickets. And all this will be possible without any extra effort, but just the app that can scan the QR code,” said 21-year old Yash Bhayre, third year student of Computer Science engineering branch from Bhopal. His team, Logic View, had won the first prize.
