Just show this SMS to TC
There is a message of seat and berth number on your mobile phone and the ticket is confirmed, then railway considers it as a valid ticket, but there are some conditions for this like SMS remains valid in the case of only those passengers who have registered with IRCTC. Or have booked tickets online. Those who have bought tickets from the counter, they do not get this facility.
What to do with counter ticket?
If you have bought a counter ticket and do not have a ticket, then the passenger is allowed to travel if certain conditions are met. That person will have to prove in front of the TC that he is the passenger in whose name the ticket has been purchased. However, even after that the problem of the passenger does not end. He has to pay the ticket price and fine. Apart from this, also know that if the ticket is of air-conditioned class, then GST will be charged separately.
When was the e-ticket implemented?
In today’s time, work is also done with e-ticket, but at one time print out was demanded even after buying online ticket, that is, the passenger who did not have the print out. It was considered to be a ticket and challan action was also taken on it. In the year 2012, at the time of Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee, the print out of tickets was made optional for e-ticket holders, that is, even if you do not have a print out, you will not face any problem.
