IRCTC has provided POS (Point of Sale) machines to dozens of its authorised caterers for on-the-spot bill generation of food items onboard trains.
This step was taken following the complaints against vendors in trains for overcharging. With increased complaints, the IRCTC decided to introduce billing through POS devices to create a passenger-friendly atmosphere.
According to an IRCTC official, “This will make the catering tariff system transparent and will increase the credibility of the system. He also said that about 2,000 POS have been deployed in Mail and Express trains and soon rest of the trains would also be covered.”Book Trains
An inspection drive is being carried out on all the Mail and Express trains till February 15 to ensure the availability and working of POS machines.
