Poor IT puts a ‘brake’ on ticket booking of RSRTC

JAIPUR: The long queues at the bus station across the state are not due to the high demand but due to poor IT system. The ticketing counter which not only issues tickets but also a receipt for the buses to proceed is running below their capacity due to technical hitch added with a poor server. The frequent technical hitches are not only affecting the efficiency but also losses to the roadways. The reservations online/counter are being handled by Trimax Technology and server is of department of information technology. The faulty system by both service providers are sometimes causing complete shutdown at ticketing counters. Tourist are also facing a hard time as they keep log on the RSRTC website but a few lucky ones manage to purchase a ticket.

Ankit Goyal, a businessman based in Ajmer travels every second day in AC bus to Jaipur complaints that either ticketing counter takes a lot of time to issue the ticket or they refused to give a ticket citing technical problem. "This has become the order of the day. Sometimes we remain in the queue to hear that rush in the bus to get the ticket. That not only disrupt the order but also often led to scuffles among the passengers," said angry Goyal.

The ticketing counter employees work on target basis. The technical hitch left the passengers either to buy the ticket with the conductor or opt for private buses. Those falls short of the target receives the notice from the office explaining the reason for poor income. "Every day I have to refuse passengers leaving me short of my target by generating less revenue. I report the matter each time to the duty manager but they also express their inability to provide any solution," said an employee at the Luxury platform of Jaipur.

Sudhir Bhati, public relations officer of the RSRTC accepted that technical hitch is happening from the quite some time due to the seizure of accounts of the company. "The company handles online reservations and issues smart card which is also facing a big delay. We are aware of the reservation problem and has been communicated to them. For those smart card not received can avail the service by showing the number," said Bhati. Yogesh, who is in charge of Trimax Technologies handling the IT work, has expressed his ignorance of having any such problem at any bus station. "I am not aware of any such technical hitch. Infact we have not received any written complaint so far," said Yogesh to TOI.
