The government will launch an app for selling rail tickets in April, Railways Minister Nurul Islam Sujan said today.
The process will be easier after launching of the app as people currently buy rail tickets online through the website of Bangladesh Railway, he said.
He came up with the information while briefing reporters after visiting Kamalpur Railway Station in Dhaka this morning.
"We are also thinking of installing some ticketing booths on the major points of the city so that this station could remain less crowded for Eid holiday tickets," he said.
