Indian railways took a massive step for passengers to provide services at their doorstep. Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) is a subsidiary established by the Ministry of Railways to contribute catering, tourism and online booking facilities on the web.
Now with the Internet became cheaper, everyone is now using this facility on their mobile phones, laptops, desktops etc. A single click can help every passenger to get journey and other details on the screen.
People can now book/cancel tickets 24*7 anytime. All you need is to create a new IRCTC account to do bookings. They can now get the train timetable between two destinations easily.
Passengers can check their PNR status online to see if their waitlist tickets are confirmed or not before the final chart submission to avoid disappointment.
With the usage of smartphones taking the current trend, IRCTC developed a new mobile application known as IRCTC App to facilitate all the services. Every passenger with a smartphone can use the facilities by downloading the app from the official website to use it anywhere anytime.
Tatkal is a new scheme foster to get the tickets a day before the journey for the passengers who planned to travel immediately. The price of Tatkal is higher than the regular charge.
Tatkal tickets are issued for Air Conditioned classes at 10:00 AM every day and for Non-Air Conditioned classes at 11:00 AM.
