IRCTC has released a new rule for Ticket booking waiting time where a person booking the e-ticket would have to wait for 35 Seconds to book the train ticket. This rule was implemented a few days back and would be applicable on both the normal and tatkal tickets. From now, a person using online IRCTC service to book the ticket will be given 35 seconds waiting time.
It won’t be possible to book the ticket before this waiting period and if you ask to reduce this time for you from the queries section or customer service support team, they would simply say “No” to you.
According to the IRCTC network, many fraud agencies are booking online tickets in masses and this has caused inconvenience to the passengers booking their e-ticket. Hopefully, this rule will restrict such agencies and limit the number of tickets booked by them.
Many people are using automatic services or we say automated software to make the process of e-ticket booking faster so other people suffer and don’t get a ticket due to their smartness.
A lot of information is available on the Internet on How to book your e-ticket faster, now all such websites will have to pay for this. This New rule will give such sites a setback and allow passengers to book their ticket without any hassle. However, if you still want to use the software to increase your e-ticket booking speed, you can do it but we want you to make things clear. Such software takes 40secongs and sometimes more than that so 35 seconds rule is on a better side comparing to that software.
It is expected that this 35 seconds rule will help IRCTC to regularize its ticket booking format. Earlier, IRCTC waiting time was 10 seconds and now it has increased to 35 seconds so you can book your online ticket but waiting time would remain unaltered.
This 35 seconds time starts only after you login to this IRCTC site.
If you are unable to book the ticket during this 35 seconds time, then the web page will collapse and you will have to log in the IRCTC site once again to complete the ticket booking process.
People don’t get time to stand in long queues and book their train ticket by visiting Railway stations. Now more number of people have started using online ticket booking service given by IRCTC to book their ticket conveniently. This method of online ticket booking is safe and time-saving.
Some Loopholes Of IRCTC
- Many e-ticket booking service users have a complaint about the CAPTCHA that needs to enter at multiple stages of Login, at the time of reservation & making payment, etc.
- Site expires after 35 seconds so the users have to enter all of his or her personal details once again.
- A user can book only 2 tatkal tickets on a single ID for the duration of 10-12 hours.
- He or she can book max. 10 tickets in a month.
Hopefully, you find this information useful and consider it while booking your train ticket.
