BangaloreOne Centres Will Now Add The Sale Of Movie Tickets To Their List Of Services Provided

BangaloreOne Centres Will Now Add The Sale Of Movie Tickets To Their List Of Services Provided

Bangalore: No more long queues at cinema halls or malls, nor resorting to purchasing movie tickets from touts. For, the BangaloreOne centre near your house just made it easier for you to buy movie tickets, along with access to a host of other services already on offer. And this is just the beginning as BangaloreOne centres will widen the gamut of the services they offer.
As many as 19 theatres have tied up with BangaloreOne centres to issue tickets and more are expected to follow suit. By the next fortnight, the service will be made available in all the 16 BangaloreOne centres spread across the city. Furthermore, the Directorate of Electronic Delivery of Citizen Services (EDCS) will double the numbers of BangaloreOne centres across the city, with two of them at M S Building and Koramangala National Games Village. They’ll be operational by the first week of August.
Around 16 others centres are expected to be set up at BDA complexes.
Now, you can book a ticket just by mentioning the movie name or the theatre screening it at a BangaloreOne centre. This facility will allow the B1 operator to validate the booking before conducting any transaction at the BangaloreOne centre.
After booking the ticket, a receipt along with an I-ticket transaction number will be generated and handed over to the customer.
This system will work online and there is a nominal booking fee.
Advance booking can also be done for movies being screened the following week. As long as the movies are listed on the site, people can book tickets for those movies.
“This service will be available at all BangaloreOne centres at present and will be extended to new centres in the future. The software application is ready and is in the final stages of testing. The service is expected to be launched in a fortnight,’’ EDCS director Vipin Singh, told The Times of India.
“We want to increase the geographical reach of BangaloreOne centres. We are also looking at bringing in more services to enrich the citizen’s experience,’’ he added.
B1 centres, which have been functioning for the past 20 months, were closed for only for a day due to the Bangalore bandh following the Cauvery verdict. And the services offered has become a hit. On any day, around 18,000 people walk in to the 16 centres round the clock.
Senior citizens seem to have benefited the most. “We need not stand for long hours. The officials here treat us well and its quick,’’ feels Bhagyamma, a senior resident from JP Nagar.
Another senior citizen, Premchand, feels transactions at B1 centres save a lot of time. “I run a business in RT Nagar. Every time I have to pay my bills, one of my workers lands up wasting half-a-day or I have to do it myself. With more services on offer at B1 centres, its a cakewalk now,’’ he added.
