Before the resumption of Kolkata Metro service, the question of booking a metro pass was raised among people. Everyone wanted to know the procedure of booking the pass. Sanjay Chatterjee, the creator of this system, gave out a message to the people.
Sanjay Chatterjee said that even if there is no smartphone, passengers will not have any problem boarding the metro train. Sanjay Chattopadhyay, the creator of this system, assures that it will not be a problem to get the special link required to get the 'permit' or e-pass for boarding the Kolkata Metro, even if there are no smartphones.
Sanjay further said, if there is any internet connection, the passenger will not have a problem getting the e-pass. Passengers do not need to download any app on their smartphones for permission. They don't even need a smartphone.
Those who do not have a smartphone can also use the link. They can get links from desktops and laptops.
Passengers will have to get the required permission from this link to board the Kolkata Metro in the second week of September 2020.
Sanjay Chatterjee further said, “Clicking on the link will open a page. First, there will be a question, in what language the passenger wants to receive information, in three language options-Bengali, Hindi and English. Then the passenger has to write his name. They will have to mention the names of the station from where they will board the metro and get off from the metro. They also have to mention the time of the journey. All these options will come up in the app.”
“Those who have mobile will get a QR code on the phone. Those who do not have a phone will not have a problem. They will get the QR code by clicking on the link from any laptop or desktop. They will have to take a printout,” said software developer Sanjay Chatterjee.
