Universal Pass System for Passengers Travelling in Mumbai Local Trains
The Government of Maharastra decided to implement a pass system with QR codes. Called the Universal Travel Pass and QR code pass, this will be issued only to employees of the essential and emergency services, who will have access to the railway station only with this identity card. Furthermore, passes with QR codes will be checked using a smartphone or QR reader machine and this is expected to help identify travelers with fake identities.
Besides this, the QR code system will add pressure on those traveling on fake IDs and this will eventually reduce the number of commuters. Emergency and essential service personnel can get a pass with QR code at the railway station. The difference between the QR code identity cards this time and the one introduced earlier is that now, there will be a photograph of the person in the ID card. Our staff will scan these QR-coded cards. However, the difficulty is monitoring commuters during peak hours – it becomes difficult to scan everyone entering the station.
