IRCTC introduces new booking rules for train travellers


Some of us like to travel by road and some of us by air, but at no point can we avoid the Indian Railways. Be it an offbeat trip to a remote place or a holiday to a tourist destination, a train is always a good option for any Indian traveller.

But, before you book the rail tickets for your upcoming trip, you need to be aware of certain new rules that the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has come up with.

In order to prevent misuse, IRCTC has introduced new limits and checks on the i-tickets and i-tickets booked through the IRCTC website.

The Railway Ministry said in a press release, “This has been done keeping in view the analysis of usage of quota of 10 tickets which indicated that ninety per cent of users are booking up to six tickets in a given month and only 10 per cent are making more than six tickets.”
Here are the new rules that you need to know:
  1. From one user-ID, you can book up to two tickets in a day, between 8am and 10am.
  2. You can book two Tatkal tickets per used-ID in a day, between 10am and 12pm.
  3. You can’t book more than six tickets in a month using one user-ID.
  4. The ‘Quick Book’ option won’t be operational from 8am to 12pm.
  5. All ticketing agents have been barred from booking tickets between 8am and 8:30am for general bookings, between 10am and 10:30am for AC Tatkal bookings, and between 11am and 11:30am for non-AC Tatkal bookings.
  6. Although not more than one booking is allowed in a session between 8am and 12pm, exceptions are there for booking tickets for return and onward journeys.
