(Corrigendum to Commercial Circular No.4 of 2015)
Sub: Go-India Smart Card scheme.
At present, only non-concessional tickets can be booked through Go-India Smart Card. Further, Tatkal booking and Advance Reservation Period (ARP) booking are also not permitted during the first two hours of opening of reservation against Go-India Smart Card.
With a view to encourage usage of Go-India Smart Card, the matter has been re-considered and it has now been decided to modify and substitute Para 1.9 and Para 1.12 as under:-
Para 1.9 All concessional bookings shall be allowed through Go-India smart card except military warrants/ vouchers and passes. However, in such cases, Go-India smart card holders shall not get the discount of 5% on purchase of the UTS-ATVM tickets.
Para 1.12 Tatkal and opening day ARP booking shall be allowed against Go-India Smart Card subject to limitation of one transaction per day.
This issues with the concurrence of the Accounts and Finance Directorates of the Ministry of Railways.
