  1. Nice to know that you've blogged about this feature at the station... But, Unfortunately my friend, the system does not seem to be working yet.

    I had to go to the station to pick up my mom on sunday morning and I ended up wasting 3 SMS'es worth of money for the tickets and then spent another 3 rupees in change at the station to buy my platform ticket...

    Still keeping my fingers crossed!!!

    Chao...
