In developing countries like India, the governments are in dire need of funds for all its projects. Hence it relies on a number of external factors such as exports, trading and FDI. On the other hand, the government also depends on internal factors such as tax from its citizens and indirectly from departments such as transportation. It is the responsibility of the government to provide transportation facilities like buses and trains to its citizens at a nominal charge and at the same time make a profit to run the government and its aided projects. To start from the lowest level, the sad truth is that the number of people travelling without tickets in buses is increasing at an alarming rate. This leads to a big loss for the transportation department and indirectly to the government which falls short of funds. When such losses are incurred due to defaulters in a large scale the government is forced to increase prices of other commodities to look at other sources of income from its citizens though hike in tax, interest rates, fuel price, VAT, etc. The proposed system reduces manpower by excluding checking inspector’s role and their responsibilities. As we are all facing a lot of problems in identifying the number of passengers travelling without tickets the design of an automation system emerges with an in-built lucrative sensor that can count the number of passengers entering inside and leaving the limousine. Further, it can also detect the number of passengers who have taken tickets and who have not taken tickets, which will be handy to track down defaulter and make the bus ticketing system more efficient.
