New Delhi : In view of several cases of irregularities in purchasing tickets through Tatkal scheme, the Railways is working upon a plan to open a separate window for ticket seekers.

In this connection Railway Board chairman Vinay Mittal said that photos of touts will be captured in the Close Circuit TV Cameras (CCTVs) on the spot. Also Railway authorities are putting in place a strong regulation that would discourage people from taking mobile phones at the ticket counters.

Railways is also going to evolve a new software for preparing E –tickets. In case of agents preparing tickets, IDs of machines will also be taken. The process will also limit the number of booking tickets once the process is completed.

Software like Firewalls would also be purchased for the purpose. Technical firm like Gartner has been hired for discouraging hacking bid by people.
