You can now book train tickets 30 minutes before the departure of the train.
If you have ever booked a ticket for train journey from the IRCTC site, then you must be familiar with the problems faced during the booking procedure.
However the railway ministry of India is continously trying from a couple of years or more to solve the issues that people face on IRCTC site.
In order to solve the problems of its customers, Indian railway launched a facility today. You will now be able to book train tickets 30 minutes before the departure of the train from the IRCTC site as well as from the reservation counters.
For the convenience of the passengers Railway has also made some good changes in its reservation chart preparation system.
According to the new rules the first chart would be prepared four hours prior to the departure of the train and then the second one will be prepared just before 30 minutes of the train’s departure.
“Earlier, the first reservation chart would be prepared four hours prior to departure of a train while second one would be prepared 30 minutes before the train departs,” a senior railway officer said to PTI.
After the preparation of the first chart i.e. four hours prior to the departure of the train, booking will be allowed on both the IRCTC site and reservation counters.Railway has also made it mandatory for the concerned department to finalize the first reservation chart four hours before the departure of train, so that passengers could know about their status and plan their journey in time.
It may prove to be a big step by Indian railway to provide ease to its customers in booking the tickets for their journey and it may also increase the earnings of the Indian Railway.
