Bhubaneswar: A day after Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, who hails from Odisha, had written to Union Railways Minister Piyush Goyal requesting to explore the option of printing rail tickets in local vernacular language, Indian Railways today decided to offer unreserved tickets in Odia language in 317 Stations in Odisha under ECoR, SER and SECR jurisdictions from April 1.
Pradhan on Thursday had written to Goyal seeking his intervention in this connection.
“Indian Railways has introduced many conveniences and facilities for the benefit of rail commuters of Odisha. There have been substantial improvements in providing amenities to the passengers and it has enhanced people’s experience of travelling by trains,” Pradhan had said.
“In this context, I take this opportunity to request you to kindly explore the option of printing rail tickets in the local vernacular language in Odia,” Pradhan had urged.
