India is rapidly growing in terms of getting digital. We all are aware of the online services offered these days to book tickets and much more making it easier. Now, the Indian Railways department also came up with adapting the digital world technology and makes it easy for people to book the tatkal tickets from home itself. Yes, you can now book your tatkal ticket online using the IRCTC e-wallet. The IRCTC e-wallet is similar to that like Paytm wallet where you are required to load money in advance in the wallet to do the further proceedings.
The IRCTC e-wallet allows you to now book the tatkal tickets online. You need to deposit money in the wallet and use the wallet option while reaching the payment page. The Indian Railways are trying their best to improve the Railway system in India and making it digital with the bookings is a great step taken. The passengers who are looking for the tatkal quota can now book e-tickets through the Rail connect App and by depositing the money in advance in the wallet can choose to use this money at the time of booking.
No need to get confused as this service is just like the Paytm wallet services. This is happy news and the IRCTC department has made this official statement on their website stating, “Like other e-wallets — Paytm and Mobikwik — IRCTC e-wallet allows its users to deposit money in advance with IRCTC, which can be used as a payment option while booking train tickets. This e-wallet facility of IRCTC will help you save time by eliminating payment approval cycle.”
Actually, the plan was integrated much in advance when we came across this news that the Minister of State for Railway Rajen Gohain announced about taking some measures to strengthen the online ticket services at railways. One more recent announcement was made by the railway officials who said that in case a train is canceled, the ticket price from start station to end station will be refunded automatically in the account itself. The IRCTC department took to the social media to share this announcement. On the twitter account, the IRCTC tweeted, “PNR (passenger name record) will be automatically canceled. Refunds will be processed in the same account through which payment was made.”
India is truly leading towards developing the railway system in India.
