Most of us, who book their train tickets through IRCTC website, must be aware of the rush that this site has while booking tickets via tatkal service.
Hopefully, yes!!! Now we have a good news for you right here!!!
IRCTC in partnership with a popular Payment app called MobiKwik has recently launched better alternative offering solutions to payment while booking tickets.
Earlier, passengers were using net banking, cash, or credit cards like methods to pay the train ticket but now a direct method has been introduced that allow passengers to directly pay the amount using MobiKwik. This facility is available only for the tatkal tickets as of now.
Generally, payment methods like cash or credit card take 5-10 minutes or sometimes more than that but using this app MobiKwik, the user can pay for a tatkal ticket in just a 2 seconds time.
Benefits Of This System
- Saves Time. As already mentioned above, other payment methods take 5-10 or more than that minutes time but this app and IRCTC allow passengers to make payment in just 2 seconds time, that is just beyond user’s expectations.
- Keeps Your Personal Information Safe: Earlier, passengers were asked to fill in their credentials like their personal information in a form, now the new system is different and doesn’t ask for any form to be filled by the passenger bookings his or her tatkal ticket.
- Fast Service. In previous payment options, the bank interrupted in between to approve the transaction that you initiated to book your ticket. But now, everything is direct and fast.
- No Authentication Required. Bank used to authenticate the passenger before approving the transaction but now IRCTC automatically deducts the amount from the MobiKwik wallet without any authentication.
Obviously, these benefits would leave you captivating but your MobiKwik wallet should have enough money to book the tatkal ticket.
Tatkal is a service given by the Indian Railways to the people who need to book their train ticket in the case of any emergency. This ticket is usually booked one-day before you plan to travel.
