Bangladesh Railways will sell half of all train tickets through station counters instead of selling all tickets online from Saturday.

This information has been given in a circular signed by Nasir Hasan Khan, the Deputy Director of Bangladesh Railway (TC) last Monday. Bangladesh Railway has decided to start selling tickets at the counter after being closed for about five and a half months due to the coronavirus situation.

According to the notification, if the number of tickets for 50 percent of the total seats sold in a particular category in favor of a station is more than six, it will be sold through the counter, app, online and mobile. If the number of tickets is less than six, it will be sold only through app, online, and mobile.

In this case, 50 percent of the total number of seats in each train should be calculated by deducting 2 percent of the reserved seats in favor of the officers and employees of Bangladesh Railway.

In addition, unsold tickets at the counter and online quota can be issued by any means up to 120 hours before departure.

Tickets will go on sale at the counters from 8:00am and online from 6:00am, the statement added.
