Tickets will be printed in respective regional languages as well for all suburban and long-distance trains. Starting May 1, the Centre for Railway Information System (CRIS) will launch the trilingual system, that already has Hindi and English.

The railway officials developing this said, “we have already completed the trials and are now ready to print the state language on rail tickets for both suburban and long-distance.”

A senior railway official said, “This will be applicable on all the Zonal Railways whereby respective regional language will be printed on tickets. For example: Gujarati for stations coming under that state, Tamil for stations coming under Tamil Nadu, Telugu in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, Malayalam in Kerala, etc.”

The local railways and CRIS will be handling this and all the tickets purchased from Unreserved Ticketing System (UTS) will be printed in the state language.
