Railway to issue a daily ticket for Mumbai local to fully vaccinated people

Railway to issue a daily ticket for Mumbai local to fully vaccinated people

The Maharashtra government has decided to start giving single journey daily tickets for a local train in Mumbai.

Late on 30th October, the State Disaster Management Authority sent a letter to Central and Western Railways to guide them to issue all kinds of tickets, including daily ticket ones, which were not allowed earlier.

However, the state government order read the daily tickets will be issued to only those fully vaccinated. Currently, because of Covid-19 protocols, the state government is only giving a pass to those who have got two shots of a vaccine dose and have completed 14 days since their second dose.

On 27th October, the state government directed the railways to issue only monthly or other passes since workers were under essential services, and government personnel could travel in trains regardless of their vaccination status. They were permitted to buy daily single or return journey tickets as well.

The Western and Central Railways will soon issue directions to all ticketing centers. Sumit Thakur, Chief Public Relation Officer of Western Railway, said they will start giving the daily tickets today. The Central Railway CPRO was not available for comments.

The decision was taken after the Mumbai suburban railways noticed that many people were traveling without tickets.

The order read.

“Thus, it has been decided to allow all citizens who have been fully vaccinated as per the phrase of the state government to travel in local trains. As one time ticketing was permitted on long distance passenger trains before too, this relaxation means that all fully vaccinated citizens or double dose vaccinated may travel in local and passenger trains on all routes, can get all kinds of tickets issued including daily ticketing. Being fully vaccinated would be the only necessary condition for issuance of any kinds of tickets for travel in trains,”
