The railways are mulling linking of train tickets with Aadhaar cards to tackle the menace of touts in bookings.

“If this happens, the tout menace will be effectively curbed in ticketing system,” Railway Minister Pawan Kumar Bansal said in New Delhi on Thursday.

Passengers often do not get tickets in advance as bulk tickets are being cornered by touts. “We are strengthening the software to facilitate maximum booking of online tickets,” he said.
