To book your rail ticket, just open an account with IRCTC

New Delhi, Aug 28 (TruthDive): Once a system of having an account with the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) comes into process, the booking of railway tickets will be a bit easier and quicker than what it was earlier.

In order to make the booking service easier for the convenience of the people, the IRCTC has planned to begin with a rolling deposit scheme (RDS), under which anybody can possibly deposit the required amount  in the account to be opened with the service provider.

The user can also obtain the tickets from the money that has been deposited by using the RDS card according to novel payment option, which the IRCTC says will have a benefit over the other modes of payment. The system would also make possible hassle-free and secured transactions, other than saving time by doing away with the payment approval sequence.

It also will shrink the user’s dependence on banks and their servers and make way for booking tickets directly through the RDS mode. Another one benefit is that there is no need for the user to pay the entry charges. The long procedure of making use of credit or debit cards for creating online purchases is scrapped away under the proposed scheme.

Anyone can open an account by using the PAN card and can activate the account through a transaction password and PIN number and maintain the account online and top up the account too. The minimum deposit amount will be around the range of Rs. 1500 to 2000. The registration charge for opening the account will be Rs 250 that can be redeemed at the time of booking tickets later.

The IRCTC is also likely to provide all possible services for the welfare of the user in order to track the transaction history and in case of any cancellation of ticket,the refund amount will be automatically deposited in the account the very next day.

  1. I have irctc account but want to open a RDS account for easy to book ticket. Kindly send the procedure of my email id as soon as possible.

  2. This is not implemented. It’s just a proposal. I came to this conclusion as I didn’t find any information on this either in public domain or in irctc website. (For agents, they do have some facility like this.)

  3. i’m in tamil nadu, some body let me know the procedure to open an RDS account in IRCTC.

    I have already account with IRCTC, this is for your kind information.

    thanks for help me in advance
