This has been done to prevent any possible misuse of online booking facility as it has been felt that a genuine passenger does not require to book tickets online for more than six times in a month, he said.

According to an analysis of usage of quota of booking 10 tickets in a month, it indicated that 90 per cent of users were booking upto six tickets in a given month and only 10 per cent were booking more than six, he said, adding that it is suspected that the 10 per cent users might be involved in touting activities.

Therefore, to deter such touts and to facilitate genuine users, it has been decided that a maximum of six tickets can be booked by an individual user in a month, said the official.

The IRCTC has already put in place various checks for the online booking on its website like only two tickets can be booked by an individual using his or her user-id in a day for advance reservation booking from 8 AM to 10 AM.
