In an important passenger friendly move, the Ministry of Railways has decided to accept two more proofs of identity for traveling on e-tickets. These are;

i) Student Identity Card with photograph issued by recognised School/College for their students.

These are in addition to the existing five proofs of identity for undertaking journey on e-tickets namely;

a) Voter Identity Card,
b) Passport,
c) PAN Card,
d) Driving License and
e) Photo Identity Card issued by Central/State Government.

The new provision will come into effect from 15th June 2010.There will be no concession including student concession admissible to the persons booking e-tickets except concession for senior citizens.

Ministry of Railways has asked all Zonal Railways to issue necessary instruction to all concerned particularly ticket checking staff so as to educate them about this modified provision and to avoid inconvenience to the passengers.
