Now National Security Guard personnel will not have to face hardships to get railway tickets as India’s elite federal contingency force has signed an agreement with IRCTC for provisioning of e-ticketing facility.

The pact will eliminate the need of using Railway Warrants by NSG officers/personnel travelling on duty in trains. Earlier, the NSG force personnel were supposed to visit Railway Reservation Counter to exchange their Railway Warrant for reserve tickets.

As per the pact, IRCTC will be extending the ticketing facility to NSG headquarters which later on may be extended to field units also. IRCTC will be extending this scheme through advance deposit to facilitate hassle free service from payments at the time online ticket booking. NSG is the first central paramilitary force to opt for e-ticketing in lieu of Railway Warrants.

IRCTC is also developing an e-ticketing cum Warrant Management System for central reserve paramilitary force (CRPF) which will be unveiled soon.
