Earlier this year, Railway Board Chairman launched e-pass module of Human Resource Management System (HRMS) developed by CRIS. Before the launch, the process for the issuance of passes had been largely manual in Indian Railways. Also, there was no facility for booking of ticket online on the pass for railway employees.
However, with the E-Pass module developed by CRIS under HRMS project, railway employee is neither supposed to come to the office for applying for pass nor has to wait for the pass to be issued. Employees can apply for the pass online from anywhere and get the e-pass generated online.
The complete process of application and generation of pass is mobile friendly. Ticket booking on pass may also be done online on IRCTC site apart from the earlier facility of counter booking from PRS/UTS counter.
Here’s everything you need to know about Pass booking:
- ‘Pass Booking’ is available under ‘TRAINS’ menu at IRCTC e-ticketing website and Rail Connect Mobile App.
- In order to book ticket in Pass Booking, at least one of the travelling passenger must be pass holder.
- While providing passenger details at passenger reservation page, user need to provide ‘Pass Number’ and ‘Pass Booking Code’ to validate his pass at the time of booking.
