Railway Minister Piyush Goyal will soon announce a big news to train passengers in the next five days. Railway CEO V. K. Yadav has given information in this regard. He said, "The Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation of India's (IRCTC) e-ticketing website is being upgraded with new facilities to make it easier for passengers to book train tickets. Yadav was speaking at a press conference on Saturday.
In addition to launching new facilities, IRCTC is also working on the next generation e-ticket website. With this special facility, train passengers will be able to book train tickets easily and simply. Earlier, the Railway Minister had said in a statement on Friday that under the new Digital India, most people now prefer to book tickets online instead of going to platform counters. So the IRCTC website needs to be made even better.
Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), the ticketing arm of Indian Railways has made a little change in the rules for booking train tickets. Now, while booking tickets, passengers will have to provide their own mobile number as their contact details. Indian Railways has taken this step in view of the increasing number of ticket touts and fake tickets surrounding the railways.
