However, tickets will not be available on mobile apps for now, passengers will be able to buy online tickets by visiting www.eticket.railway.gov.bd.

Tickets for trains operating from March 21 to 25 have been sold manually from the counters.

A five-year agreement was signed with “Shohoz-Synesis-Vinsen JV” on February 15 to operate the ticketing system of the Bangladesh Railway. 

Earlier, CNS was involved in the work.

In order to re-activate the computer ticketing system by “Shohoz” at 77 stations, it required five days.
