Kacheguda made ‘Digi-Pay Station’
Hyderabad: The South Central Railway (SCR) on Monday announced the launch of ‘Digi-Pay Station’ campaign at Kacheguda railway station here and will soon start the initiative at 10 more stations under its zone.
“Under the ‘Digi-Pay’ Station campaign, Kacheguda station is the first one under the SCR zone to become 100% digital payment compliant. We will launch the campaign at 10 more stations in the next phase in association with Andhra Bank and other banks,” SCR General Manager Vinod Kumar Yadav told reporters.
He said the SCR officials held discussions with various banks, vendors and contracting licensees in this regard. “We will try to complete 10 more stations for digital payment in the next three to four months and in the next one year we will add as many stations as possible,” Vinod Kumar Yadav added.
The idea behind ‘Digi-Pay’ Station campaign is that railway stations should become digital payment compliant wherein cashless transactions can be carried out for ticket booking, payments towards parking fee, retiring room, cloak room and other facilities, SCR officials said. –NSS
