The introduction of a pan-India, multi-purpose “Go-India” smart card on a pilot basis was announced in the Railway Budget presented for the financial year 2011-12.
The pilot project is at the development stage. There is no such problem at this stage.
Delhi-Mumbai and the Delhi-Howrah sectors have been identified for the implementation of “Go-India” smart card on a pilot basis. Allahabad Railway station falls in the Delhi-Howrah sector and is therefore covered under the pilot project.
This information was given by the Minister of State for Railways, Shri K. H. Muniyappa in reply to a written question in Lok Sabha today.
