From July 20, Western Railway has made it mandatory for government employees travelling on local trains to carry QR code passes. The passes can be obtained from their respective offices and they need to show them while entering the station or they will be barred or fined, mid-day reported. Announcement regarding the same is being made at all Western Railway stations.
According to the report, people travelling on a train can show the passes to ticket checkers/guards on their phone. This step is being taken to monitor the crowd and maintain social distancing norms inside local trains.
