New Delhi:  In view of safety of passengers and to avoid over-crowding at platforms and foot-over bridges during Diwali and Chhat festivals, Northern Railway has decided to restrict sale of platform tickets at the five major stations here, including New Delhi and Nizamuddin.

Platform tickets at New Delhi, Old Delhi, Nizamudin, Delhi Sarai Rohilla and Anand Vihar stations will not be sold  between October 24 to 29, said a senior Northern Railway official.

The official said this has been done to curb rush at busy platforms during the festive season.

However, for persons coming to stations just to assist senior citizens, physically challenged, medically sick, ladies traveling alone or with children, platform tickets will be sold on demand.
