Trivandrum, 31 July 2012: Indian Railways has given permission to issue platform tickets via the Jansadharan Ticket Booking Sevak (JTBS) counters. Earlier only general tickets were given through the JTBS counters. The decision comes to avoid rush during the peak hours at the counters in the railway stations. The platform tickets will be available at all JTBS ticket counters at a cost of Rs. 6 (inclusive of Re. 1 as service charge).
