Bangladesh Railway eTicketing Online System

Bangladesh Railway launched online internet ticket purchase service to ease the sufferings of passengers.

Bangladesh Railway Minister Obaidul Kader unveiled the online ticketing service at the Railway Bhaban today, Tuesday May 29, 2012.

“Passengers can purchase online tickets from today and if this service is successful, then whole ticketing system will be transformed to online eTicket.” said the minister.

Bangladesh Railway (BR) would keep 10 percent of its tickets reserved for online purchase as e-tickets. 15% will be allocated for mobile. Before this, 25% of the tickets were available for mobile ticketing system.

Passengers can buy online tickets from internet by using ther Visa & Master Card, both Debit  & Credit card of any bank will work online.

“2000 tickets of different destinations will be available for online purchase from Tuesday May 29.” added by managing director of Bangladesh Railway, Abu Taher.

Passengers need to buy online eTickets in 3 days advance from the actual departure date and one person can buy maximum 4 tickets against a credit/debit card for a destination for that day.

On successful completion of purchase subject to availability of desired seats, one would be able to get a printout of the ticket from his or her email address.  Passengers need to submit the printer bill copy to the e-Booth of railway station to collect the actual travel ticket.

“We have setup strong security measures to stop tickets going to black market.” Abu Taher added.

Online train ticketing will help passengers spare the hassle of coming all the way to the station during working hours and waiting in long queues. And the service will also help curb the malpractice of touting train tickets.

Meanwhile, government is going to procure 200 air-conditioned train coaches from Malaysia within a year to enhance the country’s rail service capacity, said the communications minister on Tuesday

The coaches are to be of metre gauge nature, Communications Minister Obaidul Quader said in a press briefing after Malaysian Prime Minister’s special envoy Dato Seri S Samy Vellu called on him at Railway Division.

Quader, also in charge of railway ministry, said an expert team is expected to visit Bangladesh next month to ascertain their compatibility with the local rail track.

An agreement between the two governments in this regard will follow a visit of a Bangladeshi team to Malaysia, he said.

The railway sector has been ‘limping’ with age-old tracks, coaches and engines, he said adding that of 2,835 kilometres of rail track, 2,200 kilometres are metre-gauge.

On average, about 65 million passengers avail railway service in a year. Over 50,000 people travel to and from Dhaka through Kamalapur Railway Station each day.

    It’s a great news for all of us. What if we have to stand in line for hours to get the original travel ticket in front of e-Booth ? —

    Officer will chk the printed bill copy and chl with phone and with card – I think this too will take long time. Would it take same time as old process ? Can Railway Minister think of employing some agents to do this and to ensure to save our precious time.

    Look to hear from the concerned person urgently.

    B/Rgds,

    Thanks for the system implementation in BD.Though 25% is allocated for mobile ticketing and from this 10% for e-ticketing, so I have been observing for last two weeks that railway authority don’t give clearence 25% in mobile ticketing.I think it were less than 10%.Though it has no proof but that is our observation to see the domination of black ticket seller position.

    So my suggestion pls increase the % of e-ticketing and maintin it strictly. thanks.

    I tried to buy a ticket from dhaka to ctg but failed. Because of my debit card. I have a debit card issued by Islami Bank.e-ticketing process is not accepting my debit card though it is mentioned that any debit/credit card of any local bank is acceptable. Thanks. Hakim.
