Now a days touch screen are widely used for many applications like touch screen based monitor, touch screen based mobile etc, In present day booking a person who wishes to book a railway ticket has to go to the booking centre and reserve the tickets .In reservation counter a person is appointed to give the tickets and reserve the seats. Many times there will be queue near reservation counter and the costumers have to wait for a long time. This consumes lot of time of the costumer. To overcome this drawback we have come up with an idea to develop a touch screen based project which helps the costumer as well as it reduces the work of the reservation Counter.
In our project every customer can book the ticket, check the availability of seats in each train, and each customer is given a smart card in which amount can be written and read. It saves the time of the costumer .The card can be recharged also, that option is also given in our software .Visual Basics is used for front end design. Every Card will be having a card number .Whenever a costumer books a ticket the amount will be reduced in the card based on the ticket fare. If the person is not having enough amounts in the card, the software gives information, which is recharge, the card. A database is maintained in software side. The information about trains, tickets and availability of seats are all stored in the database which is maintained and updated. So by doing this project we r making the railway ticket booking prepaid using smart card. This doesnâ„¢t need any manual resources
