Modernization of Indian railways has always been a question in focus for the development of the basic infrastructure of our country. Since the railways represent one of the best modes of transport available to the common people, it would be impossible to just keep increasing the fares to meet costs incurred due to maintenance, the large workforce and the expansion activities. The railways should consider upgrading itself to cutting-edge technologies for better efficiency and cost reduction. One such up gradation is the role of information technology and e-ticketing which is achieved with the help of RFID technology. This RFID technology has been extensively used in the identification process these days with the help of a card and a reader. The idea has evolved from a systematic study of the computerization of railways and the loopholes in the present day system. A simple theoretical model is proposed which when implemented could result in an easier and better management of the tedious ticketing process.
