Colleges, provides students the railway train concession forms, issued by the Central and Western Railway, to avail the concession facility. Students have to wait for hours in a queue to get this form. The concerned college authority has a cumbersome task of filling the student details manually on the form. After analysing all the problems and requirements of the hour, the need for automation was strongly felt.

The perfection of data that this e-railway concession system provides to the institute and the government cannot be achieved with the manual proceedings. It aims at making the process efficient, quick and easy-going.
