Chennai: Five IT innovations developed by a five-member team comprising commercial clerks and ticket inspectors of Southern Railway have been selected as top entries in the Innovations in Public Administration challenge organized by Capacity Building Commission as part of the Mission Karmayogi programme.
The innovations – Portable Unreserved Ticketing System (P-UTS), designed to issue tickets at remote stations where telecom connectivity is unreliable; Rail Partner, an Android app on train information for passengers; Rail Dhandora, an app where passengers can access all commercial circulars of railways; Rail Census, an app to conduct surveys of passenger on trains and TPMS or Ticketing Peripherals Management System, an app for lifecycle management of reservation system peripherals – will be used as a case study for capacity building of civil servants and will also be included in the knowledge repository to be created by central government in the future.
P-UTS needs electricity to work and will be put under trial at different suburban railway stations in Chennai.
The team works in an IT and innovation cell in the office of principal chief commercial manager Ravi Valluri. The team comprising chief commercial clerk V Anil Chowdary, deputy chief ticketing inspector P S Abinaya, senior commercial clerk R Saravanan, reservation supervisor K Sundar and senior commercial clerk R Nithyaraj has developed an ecosystem of IT-based innovations. tnn
