People can pay later for their Tatkal tickets as IRCTC annoucned a new scheme. This service was avaialble only for general reservations so far. Initially, for Tatkal ooking, the payment has to be done first and then only the ticket gets confirmed.
For tatkal tickets, IRCTC suers can pay through cash or debit/credit cards. As per reports, 130,000 tatkal transactions happen and all the tickets are booked within few minutes of opening. Due to the new feature, the transaction failures issue gets eliminated.
This is going to benefit millions of travellers who are going to book. Once hte user chose the ‘Pay on delivery’, the collection happens within 24 hours of the booking.
