New Delhi: The Railways will go the Metro way & install automatic flap gates with bar code scanners at stations to facilitate faster ticket checking & ease the pressure on ticket examiners & collectors.

To begin with, the access control system, already operational in Kolkata & Delhi Metro services, will be implemented at non-metropolitan stations.

More Information:

  • CRIS, the software arm of the Railways, is on the job to make the new flap gate system operational at Brar Square station in Delhi Division as a pilot project.
  • A senior Railway Ministry official said, the access control system at Brar Square will be functional in the next 3 months.
  • If successful, the system will enable the Railways to deal with the shortage of train ticket examiners & ticket collectors.
  • An encrypted QR code will be printed on unreserved tickets for the designated station where passengers need to enter/exit through these gates after validating their tickets, according to the system design.

Further Details About The System

  • The automatic flap gate system can handle faster entry/exit of passengers during the rush hour.
  • Besides installing automatic gates, there will be counters at the Brar Square station to provide QR-coded tickets to passengers for entry/exit.
  • The official said,”We chose Brar station for conducting the trial because the passenger rush is limited here.”
  • As a first step, the entire station will be fenced so that no passenger escapes without ticket.
  • It costs around Rs 4 lakh to install the automatic gate with bar code facility.
  • Besides, there will be thermal printers at ticket counters for bar coded tickets.
