The corporation has received two cases recently, where unauthorized tickets have been booked in the name of IRCTC.
The actual official website is www.irctctourism.com which can be used to book Indian Railways tours, air tours, land packages and cruise packages as well.
The IT Centre has already filed the FIRs online as well as from counter. Also, an alert scroller has been updated on the IRCTC tourism homepage, which reads: “www.irctctour.com is not an official/ authorised website of IRCTC.
IRCTC is not responsible for any transactions done on this website.” Further, in order to stop the fraud activities, the corporation has requested everyone to create awareness among their near and dear ones through different modes of communication.
Meanwhile, the Railway Protection Force conducted one of its biggest crackdowns on unauthorized and illegal ticketing in Indian Railways. Recently, PTI has reported that the Railway Protection Force has arrested a software developer from the state of Jharkhand for illegal ticketing of Indian Railways.
