In a bid to facilitate passengers, railway tickets would henceforth be available even at post offices in Mumbai.
To begin with, this facility has been introduced at four post offices namely Girgaon, Dadar, Chembur and Mandvi in the metropolis.
Union Minister of State for Communications and IT, Gurudas Kamat, launched the railway reservation system for providing tickets at four post offices in Mumbai today.
"The project would not only reduce the queues at railway stations but also reduce load at railway centres," Kamat said.
Chief Post Master General, M S Bali, hoped that the facility would generate additional revenue for the Posts.
Union Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee had announced the initiative during the budget last year to make the facility available in 500 post offices across the country.
The facility would soon be extended to as many as 103 other post offices, he added.
