Railway Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda while presenting the Railway Budget confirmed that the existing online reservation system would be revamped. The minister confirmed that ticket sales would be promoted through mobile phones and post offices. The existing capabilities of the Railway’s e-ticketing system would be upgraded to support 7,200 ticket bookings per minute from the existing 2,000 tickets per minute. This would allow 120,000 simultaneous users to use the system at any point.
