IRCTC to launch new faster rail ticket booking app

07 January 2017

Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) Limited will soon launch a new ticketing app, which will have several add-on features for faster booking of tickets.

Equipped with the latest technology, IRCTC Rail Connect will replace the existing IRCTC Connect to facilitate booking of train tickets in a faster and easier way, a senior railway ministry official said.

IRCTC, which handles online train ticket bookings, will formally unveil the faster and more user friendly ticketing app IRCTC Rail Connect next week in a bid to improve customer experience and cater to the growing demand of passengers to make online booking.

The new ticketing app, which is based on next generation e-ticketing system, will be synchronised with the ticketing website also, which is missing in the current system.

Passengers will continue to be able to search and book train tickets, check their existing reservations or cancel them, and get upcoming journey alerts in the new application.

IRCTC Rail Connect will retain the passenger details for the recently-booked tickets, so that they don't have to enter their details again and again.
