Increase in IRCTC Ticket Booking Capacity
Did u ever booked your tickets online succesfully till end at IRCTC website.
6 out of 10 say No..Thats true.
IRCTC e-ticketing system has got many criticisms from Passengers about its performance.The most common complaint from users is that IRCTC website hanging frequently leading to unsuccesful booking. The same problem even for Tatkal also.
To avoid congestions and to complete your ticket booking easily,Railway Minister Bansal has
announced in the Railway Budget 2013-14 about the next generation e-ticketing system with faster access and ease.
This system supports 7200 tickets to be booked per minute as against 2000 tickets now.It’s also able to handle 120,000 simultaneous users at any point against the current capacity of 40,000 users.
We can see this system fully operational by the end of 2013.Passengers will now be able to book tickets from 12.30am to 11.30pm.
Very soon Indian railways provide us ticket bookings through mobile phones also.
