On IRCTC website irctc.co.in, people look to book Tatkal tickets during emergencies or when last minute travel plans arise. Needless to say, during the festive season bookings get over in just a few minutes. Therefore Tatkal seems not so beneficial for most passengers. The setback of Tatkal includes many factors, the time it takes in payment for a ticket is the key factor which leads to unsuccessful booking. Thus, a passenger is left with no option, but to take a wait-listed ticket for the journey. However, here is relief, courtesy Indian Railways! Now there is nothing to worry about, because IRCTC has started a service which may benefit you a lot.
It has been announced now that the booking of Tatkal tickets can be processed without prepayment using a service through IRCTC. In fact, passengers can make the payment after booking their Tatkal ticket! In other words, passengers do not have to pay at the time of booking. This service allows them to pay after a successful booking only. This service was applicable to general booking of tickets only earlier, but it has now started for Tatkal tickets too.
In fact, IRCTC has even started a service called, 'Pay on Delivery' to make it easier for booking Tatkal tickets. Now, users can find a 'home delivery' option on the site and they may opt for payment through cash, debit or credit card. Indian Railways is hoping to get a good response from people for this new IRCTC service.
