Indian Railways: IRCTC online initiatives launched in tune with Budget proposals


Spurred by a string of IT-driven passenger-friendly initiatives, Indian Railways is driving IRCTC to set up an ambitious agenda to emerge as an efficient, single window solution for e-ticketing, catering, tourism and online shopping.

Indian Railways says this includes everything from improving the capacity of portal based ticket booking to expanding the operations of e-catering.

Of late, Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Ltd. (IRCTC) has launched new initiatives in all its verticals such as e-ticketing, tourism, catering, online shopping and Rail Neer, to strengthen its brand as a ‘Mini Ratna’ PSU of the Indian Railways.

Dr A K Manocha, Chairman and Managing Director, IRCTC said, “We have launched a series of initiatives that are in tune with the proposals of the Indian Railways Budget 2015-16. In particular, we have started leveraging IT in a big way to extend the portfolio of passenger amenities.” More info
