IRCTC ticket booking discount: With an aim to provide relief to train passengers and encourage railway commuting, the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has come up with brilliant idea. This move by the Indian Railways will also help commuters save some money.
IRCTC, the Indian Railways ticketing arm, is offering discount on tickets that are available after chart preparation. Those booking tickets after chart preparation and when there is seat available will get 10 per cent discount on their tickets.
Railways passengers must note that the Indian Railways train chart is being prepared 4 hours before the train’s departure. The IRCTC ticket booking discount facility can be availed by passengers by booking current ticket half-an-hour before the train’s departure.
Current ticket booking facility is available on both IRCTC online platform as well as Railway platforms.
