NEW DELHI: Railways would set up separate counter for women at reservation centre as a special facility to ensure easy purchase of tickets by them.

A separate reservation counter should be earmarked for ladies if the average demand per shift is not less than 120 tickets at computerised reservation centre, according to the directive issued to all zones.

For those reservation offices where separate reservation counters have not been earmarked for ladies and also those locations which have not been computerised, female passengers should not be compelled to join the general queues and be attended to separately at the same counter as for general passengers.

Zones have also been directed to display a notice board stating availability of the facility near the reservation counter.

Women will be allowed to purchase tickets from these reservation counters irrespective of persons for whom the reservation is being sought. However, no other persons will be allowed to purchase ticket for them from these counters.
