HHT devices are the size of an iPad (I-pad), which include preloaded passenger reservation charts. Instead of going through paper charts as before, ticket checking staff can search for real-time updates on bookings by searching through these tools, which are connected to the central server of the passenger reservation system. Therefore, if a passenger with a reserved ticket does not cancel his/her journey at the last minute, the vacant seat is displayed on the HHT device, allowing the Train Ticket Examiner (TTE) the wait-listed passenger or the Reservation Against Cancellation (RAC) passenger to book the seat. able to allocate.
