IRCTC allows passenger to get ticket home delivered

Many passengers still prefer to buy their tickets over reservations counters even though there is a facility to book their tickets online.

Or they seek the help of travel agents for booking their train tickets. There are many reasons for that.

Many people are scared of digital payment modes while others say that they do not have enough money in their accounts to use net banking or debit card, and some say that they do not have a credit card to buy tickets.

Some do not know the payment procedure due to which they step ahead to book their tickets on their own.

Whatever is the reason, the number of passengers who buy tickets at the counters is quite significant even in this digital age.

Now, those people can happily book their tickets without any trouble as IRCTC introduces pay on delivery option for the passengers.

So, passengers can opt for it with which they can get their tickets home delivered to be paid.

With this option, there is no need to wait in long standing queues for your train tickets. Nor there is a need to depend on travel agents.

You can simply book the ticket online and get your ticket at your doorstep.

The ‘pay on delivery option’ can be used by passengers on the website of IRCTC and on mobile app. So far, IRCTC is accepting digital payments and the passengers who are not convenient with the digital payments are hesitating to use these methods. Now, with the introduction of cash on delivery option, Indian Railways is anticipating the rise in the number of passengers who turn to digital mode. Thus, it wants to reduce the rush of passengers at the counters.

One must register with the website of IRCTC to use the pay on delivery mode while booking tickets. They have to furnish the details of their Aadhar card or PAN card.

Passengers have to pay ₹90 plus tax as delivery charge for the transactions of up to ₹5,000. If the transaction is more than ₹5,000, they should have to pay ₹120 with tax. In case of cancellation before delivery, passengers need to pay both cancellation and delivery charges.
