Indian Railways today announced that they will be rolling out its new website for e-ticketing which will be only for the public individual users & not travel agents.
So only the general public will be allowed to book tickets on the new portal which all set to launch soon.
The registration process is same as in the old site & will be free of charge.
A maximum of eight transaction per user ID per month will be allowed in the beginning, the official said, adding, the service charges levied will be Rs five per ticket for sleeper class and Rs 10 per ticket for all other classes.
IRCTS charges Rs 10 per ticket for sleeper class and Rs 20 per ticket for all other classes.
The new service will be available on its web portal www.indianrailways.gov.in.
Its launch will be announced after necessary clearance for payment gateway transaction, the official said.
The service will be available from 12.30 am to 11.30 pm.
“The project was sanctioned with a view to consolidate all the services and information on a single window interface for public,” the official said.
He said the service will provide passengers another avenue to book tickets, while easing the pressure from the IRCTC website considerably.
On offer is also a service for booking tickets on the mobile platform.
Customers desirous of utilising the facility and having Internet facilities will have to download mobile ticketing application on mobile phones from Indian Railway’s website, the official said.
Tracking facility for freight trains running and parcel status by customers would be among a host of other features that the portal is expected to introduce shortly.
