  • IRCTC extends e-ticketing timing by 15 minutes

    New Delhi, Oct.5 (ANI): In yet another passenger-friendly initiative, the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has extended the time for e-ticket booking on its portal by 15 minutes - till 11.45 p.m. Before the introduction of the new timing, passengers were allowed to book tickets through e-ticketing till 11.30 p.m. Under the earlier arrangement, the IRCTC used to shut down its main server for one hour every day - from 11.30 p.m. to 12. With the introduction of the new system on September 20, IRCTC's main server will be closed for 45 minutes only-from 11.45 p.m. to 12.30 a.m. It is because of such an arrangement that passengers can now avail e-ticketing facility for an extra 15 minutes. Recently, IRCTC, a 'mini Ratna' PSU of Indian Railways, had imported five new HP Itanium servers from Singapore to speed up e-ticketing operations on its digital platform.
