Now train tickets at your doorstep

Date:

New Delhi: The online ticketing service of Indian Railways has come up with an idea that e-commerce website has been doing so far to increase sale.

IRCTC launched “cash on delivery” (CoD) for train tickets, targeting those customers who are reluctant to use their credit or debit cards, as well as, those who don’t have net-banking facility.

The new system allows you to book a rail ticket online and get it delivered at home where the payment can be made.

“One has to just book the ticket online and payments will be made at the time of delivery of tickets,” said a senior IRCTC official involved with the project. This scheme has been launched on pilot basis and the service will be available in more than 200 cities initially.

Customers can book a ticket 5 days prior to commencement of journey. While Rs 40 will be charged for the delivery of each Sleeper Class ticket, Rs 60 will be charged for an AC class ticket.

Anduril Technologies through their website and their App – BookMyTrain.com is authorised for providing CoD services. This is another attempt to move people away from the ticket counters and decongest the booking windows, the official said.
