Bhopal: In an initiative to keep illegal vendors away from entering the premises, the Rani Kamlapati station has launched a QR code payment facility which is displayed on tea cups. Tea vendors have also gone high-tech as they have collar cameras and walkie-talkies in their hands.
Project Manager, Sentiers de Bansal, Abou Asif said the objective behind the launch of tea vendors is to provide better services to passengers. “Passengers have been asking for a long time that they don’t get hygienic tea from vendors and on several occasions they have been overcharged. Putting the QR code on the teacup itself will alleviate these issues forever,” Asif said.
Of the walkie-talkie, he said, “It will help connect vendors with other peddlers wandering around the station. This will help them coordinate at the time of services. It will make a big difference because they don’t need to yell at each other for any coordination with each other.
Sellers also receive collar cameras. “It will help record the conversation between the passenger and the seller. This will help to understand the type of passenger requests so that services can be improved in the future,” Asif added.
As a pilot project, 4 such tea vendors have been deployed to the station. “We will increase the number of suppliers based on need and its viability at the station. We want to have more such providers because the services are for passengers. However, it all depends on the passengers. We will deploy if they ask,” Asif said. Rani Kamlapati station (formerly Habibganj station) is being developed on the model of public-private partnership (PPP) in collaboration with the Bansal Group. The project is being executed at an approximate cost of Rs 100 crore. Additionally, Rs 350 crore would be spent on commercial development in and around the station which are ongoing.
