JazzCash and Pakistan Railways recently signed an agreement to facilitate the payment of online ticket fees across the country.
Customers can now book their tickets online through the Pakistan Railways website or Pakistan Railways Mobile App, after which they would be able to pay for their booked e-tickets via JazzCash Mobile Accounts, JazzCash agents or debit/credit card of any bank.
The solution will also revamp the online ticket fees financial reporting and reconciliation mechanism at Pakistan Railways. This service has been integrated with JazzCash mobile application and web-based interface to allow users to pay from the comfort of their homes.
Speaking on the occasion, Khawaja Saad Rafique, Federal Minister for Pakistan Railways said,“We have not only introduced e-ticketing but are also making it hassle-free for our passengers. It is due to the success of the present e-ticketing system that leading financial agents in the market have shown interest in becoming the business partner of Pakistan Railways. ”
“JazzCash is committed to digitizing Public to Government Payments. This solution has been designed to facilitate people traveling by railway, so they no longer have to stand in long queues to purchase tickets.
