The online tickets for other reservations, except those for zoo entry, can be purchased a month in advance. The tickets booked online cannot be cancelled,” said zoo director Sisir Kumar Acharya.

Zoo officials said the initiative would help them save Rs 10 lakh annually.

“While the maintenance of online booking system will cost around Rs 3.5 lakh, the printing of tickets used to cost Rs 14 lakh annually,” said an official.

The zoo has also roped in with a bank to provide the visitors with the facilities of swapping machines at the counters.
