Indian Railways is planning to review and revise the scheme governing the Internet Rail Ticketing System so that passengers without an Internet connection or a credit card can benefit from it. The modalities of the new system are being worked out.
First launched in Delhi area in August last year, Internet rail ticketing has since been extended to 73 major cities all over the country. Around 2,000 tickets are sold daily through Internet.
The cutting edge Internet technology is used to enable passengers to book a ticket from their home or office. They can pay through electronic means. The ticket can also be picked up from a designated location.
Operated by the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation, the Internet rail ticketing system can be accessed through its website www.irctc.co.in.
