A platform ticket is issued by the Indian railways that grant the passengers with access to platforms of the railway stations. The people with passenger tickets can roam freely with their family and friends on the railway platforms but cannot board or access any of the train services. The platform tickets are valid for 2 hours from the time of the issue. With the emergence of technology, now you can buy platform tickets online. So staying in long queues to get the platform ticket is a thing of the past! The people roaming on the platforms without a platform ticket are liable to be penalised by the Indian Railways staff.
