Few days before our Honorable railway minister for state E. Ahamed declared that railway will reduce the cost of smart cards used for ticketing. My opinion is before going to reduce the cost, it is better if he takes necessary steps to repair the existing Automatic Ticket Vending Machines placed in the Chennai sub urban railway stations, Otherwise the objective of this machine “i.e., reduces crowding at ticket counters” will not be achieved.

Most of the Automatic Ticket Vending Machines placed in the sub urban railway stations are now not working. And now people are losing their trust on these vending machines, still if no one takes care of these machines, obviously no one will buy this card even if it is distributed for free.
