E-ticketing in India has reduced corruption. We book
railway, flight and bus tickets through the e-tickets. Tickets for many reality shows or international sports and games and cinemas are available via e-reservation. During e-reservation we pay some nominal charges for the service.
Long ago the tickets
were reserved manually. During that time, during heavy rush periods (like holidays), the
agents or clerks or the inspecting persons could charge extra money for giving ticket/reservations ahead of
The payment is done automatically through
electronic transfer of money from one account to another. So there is
little chance for any agent or person to take bribes to book a ticket. We can directly book on the computer at any convenient time. Hence, the corruption is controlled.
