• People can now book 24 train tickets per month on the IRCTC website and app
• Benefit to those who use the same account to book train tickets for family members
The Railways announced on Monday 6th june that people can now book 24 train tickets per month on the IRCTC website and app if their user ID is linked to Aadhaar; otherwise, only 12 tickets can be purchased.
Until now, the Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has allowed people to book six tickets per month if their account is not linked to Aadhar, and twelve if it is.
“To assist passengers, Indian Railways has decided to increase the limit of booking maximum 6 tickets per month by a user ID that is not Aadhaar linked to 12 tickets and the limit of booking maximum 12 tickets per month by a user ID that is Aadhaar linked and that one of the passengers in the ticket to be booked is verifiable through Aadhaar,” the ministry said in a statement.
According to officials, this will benefit frequent travellers as well as those who use the same account to book train tickets for family members.
